Description (see definition): Series of heights rising to 960 m and extending in an arc from Worswick Hill to High Stile in the central part of Coronation Island, South Orkney Islands. The feature was named Brisbane Plateau following the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) survey of 1948-49, but resurvey in 1956 determined heights to be a more suitable descriptive term. Matthew Brisbane, master of the cutter Beaufoy, accompanied James Weddell, master of the brig Jane, to the South Orkney Islands in January 1823, and roughly charted the S coast of the group.
