Description (see definition): Point marking the SE end of a snow-covered island, located 1 mi N of Abrupt Point on the western side of Edward VIII Bay. First mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition (1936-37) and, though not specifically named on the map, the point appears to have been included as part of two larger features called "Skutenes" and "Skutenesmulen." "Skutenes" (barge point) was subsequently mapped by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) as two snow-covered islands, making this descriptive name and "Skutenesmulen," a derivative, inappropriate. Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) named the point Cape Dalton for R.F.M. Dalton, officer in charge of Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) work at Macquarie Island, 1953.
