Description (see definition): A small island lying 3 mi NW of Flat Islands in Holme Bay. Mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37, and perhaps included in the scattered islands which they called Ytterskjera. Van Hulssen Island was included in a triangulation carried out by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) in 1954, and in 1955 a party established an automatic meteorological station there. Named by ANCA for F.A. Van Hulssen, radio station supervisor at Mawson Station in 1955.
