Hallam Peak (77°38′54″S 163°23′0″E) is a distinctive rock peak in the Kukri Hills of Victoria Land, Antarctica. The peak rises to 900 metres (3,000 ft) between the heads of Von Guerard Glacier and Aiken Glacier and provides an unobstructed view of the Lake Fryxell locality of Taylor Valley. It was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names in 1997 after Dr. Cheryl A. Hallam, a geographer with the United States Geological Survey who specialized in geographic information systems, and who worked four summer seasons in Antarctica, 1994–95, 1995–96, 1996–97 and 1999–00.
