The Bailey Rocks (66°17′S 110°32′E / 66.283°S 110.533°E / -66.283; 110.533) are small chain of rocks in the Antarctic Windmill Islands which extends northeast from the north side of Bailey Peninsula into Newcomb Bay. They were first mapped from air photos taken by USN Operation Highjump, 1946–47, and observed in 1957 by Wilkes Station personnel under C. R. Eklund.
