Mount Parry is a mountain in Antarctica with an elevation of 2,520 metres (8,268 ft).[2] Mount Parry rises eastward of Minot Point and dominates the central portion of Brabant Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. The peak appears to have been named by Captain Henry Foster, Royal Navy, of the Chanticleer expedition in 1829 and since has gained international usage.
