Tilley Nunatak ( Coordinates: ) is a bold, rocky outcrop 5 nautical miles (9 km) south of Hobbs Islands, projecting from the coastal ice cliffs eastward of William Scoresby Bay. Discovered in February 1936 by DI personnel on the William Scoresby and named by them for Professor C.E. Tilley, who studied the rock specimens brought back by the expedition.

The Prince Charles Mountains are a major group of mountains in Mac. Robertson Land in Antarctica, including the Athos Range, the Porthos Range, and the Aramis Range. The highest peak is Mount Menzies. Other prominent peaks are Mount Izabelle and Mount Stinear. These mountains together with other scattered peaks form an arc about 260 miles long, extending from the vicinity of Mount Starlight in the north to Goodspeed Nunataks in the south.
Enderby Land is a projecting landmass of Antarctica. Its shore extends from Shinnan Glacier at about 1⁄24 of the earth's longitude. It was first documented in western and eastern literature in February 1831 by John Biscoe aboard the whaling brig Tula, and named after the Enderby Brothers of London, the ship's owners who encouraged their captains to combine exploration with sealing.to William Scoresby Bay at , approximately
Kemp Land is a thin sliver of Antarctica including, and lying inland from, the Kemp Coast. Part of the Australian Antarctic claim it is defined as lying between 56° 25' E and 59° 34' E, and, as with other sectors of the Antarctic, is deemed being limited by the 60° S parallel. It is bounded in the east by Mac. Robertson Land and in the west by Enderby Land. Kemp Land includes one major group of islands, the Øygarden Group.

Uksen Island is a steep-sided, isolated island lying 6 km (4 mi) northeast of Tilley Nunatak, off the coast of Mac. Robertson Land. It was first mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936–37, and named Uksen.
Sheehan Islands is a group of small islands lying at the southeast side of Islay in the William Scoresby Archipelago. Discovered on February 18, 1931, by the British Australian New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) under Mawson. He named one of the group Sheehan Nunatak after Sir Harry Sheehan, Asst. Secretary to the Treasury, who was Secretary of the Australian Antarctic Committee of BANZARE. BANZARE erroneously charted Sheehan Nunatak as lying behind the coastline. The insularity of the group was determined by Discovery Investigations personnel on the RSS William Scoresby on February 27, 1936. The islands were more fully mapped by Norwegian cartographers from aerial photographs taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition in January and February 1937.
Bluie was the United States military code name for Greenland during World War II. It is remembered by the numbered sequence of base locations identified by the 1941 United States Coast Guard South Greenland Survey Expedition, and subsequently used in radio communications by airmen unfamiliar with pronunciation of the Inuit and Old Norse names of those locations. These were typically spoken BLUIE (direction) (number), with direction being east or west along the Greenland coast from Cape Farewell.
William Scoresby Bay is a coastal embayment at the western side of William Scoresby Archipelago, Antarctica. It is 8 kilometres (5 mi) long and 5.6 kilometres (3.5 mi) wide, with shores marked by steep rock headlands and snow-free hills rising to 210 m. The practical limits of the bay are extended 6.4 kilometres (4 mi) northward, from the coast by island groups located along its east and west margin. Discovered in February 1936 by Discovery Investigations (DI) personnel on the RSS William Scoresby, for which the bay was named.
William Scoresby Archipelago is a group of islands which extends northward from the coast just east of William Scoresby Bay, Antarctica. The more important islands in the group are Bertha, Islay, Couling and Sheehan Islands. Most of the islands in this archipelago were discovered in February 1936 by Discovery Investigations personnel on the RSS William Scoresby. They named the group after their ship.
Point Appleby is a point on the western side of an unnamed island lying 0.8 nautical miles (1.5 km) south of Warren Island in William Scoresby Bay. Discovered, charted and named by DI personnel on the William Scoresby in February 1936, as a point on the eastern shore of the bay. Later mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936–37, as a point on an island near the eastern side of the bay.
Bertha Island is an island 4.6 kilometres (2.5 nmi) long, lying 1.9 kilometres (1 nmi) south of Islay at the east side of William Scoresby Bay. It was discovered and named in February 1936 by Discovery Investigations personnel on the William Scoresby.
Butler Nunataks are a small group of nunataks immediately north of Mount Twintop in the Framnes Mountains. The group was mapped from Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions surveys of 1954–62, and named by the Antarctic Names Committee of Australia for W.J. Butler, senior diesel mechanic at Mawson Station in 1967.
Warren Island is a small island in William Scoresby Bay, close south of the west end of Bertha Island. Discovered and named by Discovery Investigations personnel on the William Scoresby in February 1936.
West Stack is a coastal rock outcrop which rises to 120 m on the west side of Hoseason Glacier, 14 nautical miles (26 km) southeast of Edward VIII Bay. Discovered in February 1936 by DI personnel on the William Scoresby, and probably so named by them because of its distinctive appearance and association with nearby East Stack.
Gawne Nunatak is a nunatak on the east side of Wells Saddle between Mount Berlin and Mount Moulton in the Flood Range of Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica. It was mapped by the United States Geological Survey from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1959–66, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Steven P. Gawne, a member of the United States Antarctic Research Program team that studied ice sheet dynamics in the area northeast of Byrd Station in the 1971–72 season.
Stack Bay is a small bay between West Stack and the mouth of Hoseason Glacier in Enderby Land. Mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition (1936–37) and called "Skotvika" because of the proximity to West Stack, named by personnel of RRS William Scoresby in 1936. The name for the bay has been approved in a translated form to agree with West Stack.
Tilley Bay is a bay just east of Tilley Nunatak on the coast of Mac. Robertson Land. Mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936–37, and named Nabbvika. Renamed by Antarctic Names Committee of Australia (ANCA) because of its proximity to Tilley Nunatak.
Rayner Peak is a prominent peak, 1,270 m, standing 35 nautical miles (60 km) southwest of the head of Edward VIII Bay and 2 nautical miles (3.7 km) west of Robert Glacier. It was discovered in February 1936 by DI personnel on the William Scoresby and was named for George W. Rayner, a zoologist on the DI staff and leader of the expedition.
