Cape Jules (66°44′S 140°55′E) is a rocky cape with a small cove along its northern end, 3 nautical miles (6 km) west of Zelee Glacier Tongue, Antarctica. It was discovered and named by the French expedition under Dumont d'Urville, 1837–40. Jules is the given name of the discoverer, Captain Jules Dumont d'Urville, as well as his son. The area was charted by the Australasian Antarctic Expedition in 1912–13, and again by the British Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition in 1931, both under Mawson. The French Antarctic Expedition under Michel Barre established astronomical control at this locality in 1951.
