Azimuth Islands are a group of 4 small islands lying 1.9 km (1 nmi) northwest of Parallactic Islands in Holme Bay, Antarctica. They share their name with the largest island in the group, Azimuth Island ( ). Mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37. So named by Antarctic Names Committee of Australia (ANCA) because the largest island in the group was included in a triangulation survey by ANARE (Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions) in 1959.
