Explorers Range (70°50′S 162°45′E / 70.833°S 162.750°E / -70.833; 162.750) is a large mountain range in the Bowers Mountains of Victoria Land, Antarctica, extending from Mount Bruce in the north to Carryer Glacier and McLin Glacier in the south. Named by the New Zealand Antarctic Place-Names Committee (NZ-APC) for the northern party of New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (NZGSAE), 1963-64, whose members carried out a topographical and geological survey of the area. The names of several party members are assigned to features in and about this range.[1] All of the geographical features listed below lie situated on the Pennell Coast, a portion of Antarctica lying between Cape Williams and Cape Adare.
