The Demas Range (75°0′S 133°45′W) is a mountain range about 15 kilometres (8 nmi) long that forms the lower east margin of the Berry Glacier in Marie Byrd Land. The range trends north-south culminating in Mount Goorhigian, 1,115 metres (3,660 ft) high. It was discovered by the United States Antarctic Service, 1939–41, led by Admiral Richard E. Byrd, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for E.J. "Pete" Demas, a member of the Byrd Antarctic Expeditions of 1928–30 and 1933–35.
