Description (see definition): Prominent rock exposures along the coast at the NE extremity of the Vestfold Hills, about 0.5 mi S of Wyatt Earp Islands. Mapped from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37. In January 1939 a landing was made on this point from the Wyatt Earp. It was visited by an Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) party in May 1957 and records left in 1939 were recovered. The records were wrapped in a copy of the Australian Geographical Magazine Walkabout," hence the name.
