Magnet Bay (AUS) 66° 22' 50.4" S 56° 23' 25.3" E Bay
Name ID: 40 Place ID: 8849

An embayment on the coast of Kemp Land, about 24 km west of Cape Davis. BANZARE (1929-31) plotted Magnet Bay as a wide embayment extending from Cape Davis to Cape Borley. Later exploration, especially that by the Lars Christensen Expedition (1936-37) and ANARE (1956-61) has shown the bay to be less extensive than plotted by BANZARE. Named by Sir Douglas Mawson after the vessel in which Peter Kemp first sighted land in this vicinity in 1833.
