Cape Hallett lies in northern Victoria Land on the Ross Sea, a southern extension of the Pacific Ocean which makes a deep indentation into the circular continental outline of Antarctica. The coastal region is dotted with active and extinct volcanos in particular around Cape Adare and Cape Hallett.
At Cape Hallett, the United States and New Zealand established a now-abandoned base during the 1957-58 International Geophysical Year. The scenery here is wild and spectacular At Edisto Inlet, there is an amphitheatre of glaciers and mountains over 4,000 metres. Weddell Seals and Adelie Penguins abound. Near the former base there is a colony of over 55,000 pairs of Adelie Penguins.
