Description (see definition): Crescent-shaped rock fronting the sea 4 mi W of Torlyn Mountain in Mac. Robertson Land. Early in January 1930 the British Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) under Mawson made an aerial flight from the ship area. Mawson landed on the rock on Feb. 13, 1931 and named it for James Henry Scullin, Prime Minister of Australia, 1929-31. The rock was charted in January-February 1931 from Norwegian whale catchers exploring along this coast, and named "Mount Klarius Mikkelsen" for Captain Klarius Mikkelsen, master of the whale catcher Torlyn. Mikkelsen Peak is hereby retained as the name of the highest peak of this feature.
