Group of islands and rocks which extend over an area of about 3 mi, centering about 1 mi NW of Cape Legoupil, off the N coast of Trinity Peninsula. Discovered by a French expedition under Capt. Jules Dumont d'Urville, 1837-40, who gave the name "Rocher Duroch" to one of the largest islands in the group. The FIDS, which charted the islands in 1946, recommended that the name Duroch be extended to include the entire group of islands. Named for Ensign Joseph Duroch of d'Urville's expedition ship, the Astrolabe.
