Franklin Island is an island 13 kilometres long, lying in the Ross Sea about 130 kilometres east of Cape Hickey, Victoria Land. It was discovered on January 27, 1841 by James Clark Ross, and named for Sir John Franklin, the noted Arctic explorer and Governor of Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania).
Though located just 80 kilometres north of Beaufort Island and appearing at first glance to be part of the same group, Franklin Island is not usually considered to be part of the Ross Archipelago. The island is colonized by a large group of brooding Adélie penguins.
Cape Hallett is a snow-free area Antarctic oasis on the northern tip of the Hallett Peninsula on the Ross Sea coast of Victoria Land, East Antarctica. Cape Adare lies 100 km to the north.
Marking the north end of Borchgrevink Coast and the west end of Pennell Coast, Cape Adare separates the Ross Sea to the east from the Southern Ocean to the west, and is backed by the high Admiralty Mountains. Cape Adare was an important landing site and base camp during early Antarctic exploration. Off the coast to the northeast are the Adare Seamounts and the Adare Trough.
In January 1895, Norwegian explorers Henrik Bull and Carsten Borchgrevink from the ship Antarctic landed at Cape Adare as the first documented landing on Antarctica, collecting geological specimens. Borchgrevink returned to the cape leading his own expedition in 1899 and erected two huts, the first human structures built in Antarctica. The expedition members overwintered and the survivors were picked up in January 1900. This was the first expedition party ever to winter over on the Antarctic continent.
Cape Adare is the site of the largest Adélie penguin rookery in the world.
Dugdale Glacier is a glacier about 46 km long, draining northeast from the Admiralty Mountains into Robertson Bay on the north coast of Victoria Land, Antarctica. The geographical feature flows along the west side of Geikie Ridge before coalescing with Murray Glacier just west of Duke of York Island. It was charted by the British Antarctic Expedition, 1898–1900, under Carsten Borchgrevink, who named it for Frank Dugdale of Snitterfield, Stratford-on-Avon. The glacier lies situated on the Pennell Coast, a portion of Antarctica lying between Cape Williams and Cape Adare.
