A rock outcrop, about 2,190 m above sea level, about 5 km long, about 12 km south-west of Mount Bewsher in the Prince Charles Mountains, Mac.Robertson Land. An area of moraine extends along the eastern side. First sighted from Mount Bewsher by an ANARE party led by W.G. Bewsher in January 1957. Plotted from ANARE air photographs, which show the feature to be larger than it appeared from Mount Bewsher and that it only has a domed appearance when viewed from there. Named Husky Dome to commemorate the dogs used by the party.
