Names that other countries have for this feature:
Ice-free cape, overlain by morainic drift, at the NW end of the Bunger Hills. Probably sighted from Watson Bluff (6625S, 9857E) by A.L. Kennedy and other members of the Western Base Party of the AAE under Mawson, 1911-14, who charted the W wall of what appeared to be two small islands lying N of Cape Hoadley in about 10035E. Named "Hordern Island" by Mawson for Sir Samuel Hordern of Sydney, a patron of the AAE. Renamed Cape Hordern by the US-ACAN following correlation of Kennedy's map with the US-ACAN map of 1955 compiled from aerial photographs taken by USN Operation HighJump, 1946-47.
