List of Antarctic islands north of 60° S[edit]

Oceanic islands between the Equator, 60°S, 20°W, and 115°E are the only Southern Hemisphere lands (besides East Timor) outside the 5 southern nuclear-weapon-free zones. Bouvet and Kerguelen are Antarctic islands on this map but outside the Antarctic NWFZ.
Australian islands are part of the South Pacific NWFZ. South Georgia and South Sandwich are in the Latin American NWFZ and not on this map.
