Narrative

An island 4 miles north of Lion Island on the north side of Granite Harbour. It lies between the lowest reaches of the Benson Glacier on the west, and an overflow from the Evans Piedmont Glacier on the east. The Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, established a survey station on its highest point on 20 October 1957. They named it on an analogy with the nearby Lion Island.
