Eadie Island is an island 2 km (1.2 mi) long which lies between Aspland Island and O'Brien Island, in the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. The island was charted in February 1821 by a Russian expedition under Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen, who gave the name "Ostrova Tri Brata" (three brothers islands) for the present Aspland, Eadie and O'Brien Islands. Eadie Island was then named for the dockyard manager of the Melbourne Harbour Trust of Williamstown, Australia, by Lieutenant L. C. Hill of the Royal Naval Reserve, captain of the Discovery II, which engaged in survey work in the area in 1936–37.
