Description (see definition): A small group of bare, rugged mountain peaks and nunataks, lying 4 mi inland from the coast and 10 mi SW of Scullin Monolith in Mac. Robertson Land. In January and February 1931 several Norwegian whale catchers, exploring this coast, made sketches of the land from their vessels and named this group the Gustav Bull Mountains for Captain Gustav B. Bull, at that time whaling manager of the Thorshammer. The British Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) (1929-31), under Douglas Mawson, made an airplane flight over this area in January 1930, returning for further exploration in February 1931. They gave names to individual features in the group.
