Clarke Glacier Coordinates: 75°34′S 162°05′E / 75.567°S 162.083°E / -75.567; 162.083 is a 5 mile long glacier, which drains east to the coast of Victoria Land, immediately north of Lewandowski Point. The seaward extremity of this glacier merges with the flow of Davis Glacier and other glaciers from the south and contributes to the floating tongue of ice between Cape Reynolds and Lamplugh Island.

The glacier was discovered and named by the British Imperial Antarctic Expedition (BrAE) (1907-1909) under Ernest Shackleton.
