Names that other countries have for this feature:
A moraine-covered rock cape, marking the boundary between Queen Mary Land and the Knox Coast of Wilkes Land, at the western end of the Bunger Hills. First seen by A.L. Kennedy, magnetician with the Western Base Party of AAE (1911-14), from Watson Bluff, David Island, whilst carrying out a survey on foot. Photographed by USN Operation Highjump (1946-47) and ANARE in January, 1956. Photographed and mapped by the Soviet Antarctic Expedition. The name Hordern was first applied by Sir Douglas Mawson after Sir Samuel Hordern of Sydney, a patron of the expedition. The earlier name Hordern Peninsula has been withdrawn since recent mapping has shown that the feature named was not a peninsula.
Sir Samuel Hordern, a patron of the AAE (1911-14) expedition.
