Anchorage Island, Princess Elizabeth Land

Anchorage Island is an island about 1 km long and 0.5 km wide, approximately 2 km north-west of Davis Station. It was mapped by Norwegian cartographers from aerial photographs taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition (1936–37). Its name comes from the fact that ships arriving to relieve Davis Station used the island as an anchoring point.
