Group of moderately low, rounded coastal hills, overlain by morainic drift and notably ice free in the summer months, lying S of the Highjump Archipelago. The hills are marked by numerous meltwater ponds and are nearly bisected by E-W trending Algae Lake. Mapped from air photos taken by USN Operation HighJump, 1946-47, and named by the US-ACAN for Lt. Cdr. David E. Bunger, USN, plane commander of one of the three USN Operation HighJump aircraft which engaged in photographic missions along most of the coastal area between 14 E and 164 E. Bunger and members of his crew landed their airplane on an unfrozen lake here in February 1947.
