Goodall Ridge (71°2′S 66°50′E / 71.033°S 66.833°E / -71.033; 66.833Coordinates: 71°2′S 66°50′E / 71.033°S 66.833°E / -71.033; 66.833) is a partly snow-covered rock ridge about 6 nautical miles (11 km) west-southwest of Taylor Platform in the Prince Charles Mountains of Antarctica. It was plotted from Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions air photos taken in 1956 and 1960, and was named by the Antarctic Names Committee of Australia for A.W. Goodall, a diesel mechanic at Macquarie Island in 1962 and at Davis Station in 1964.[1]
