The Hannam Islands are three small islands lying in the eastern part of Commonwealth Bay, Antarctica, midway between Cape Denison and Cape Gray. They were discovered by the Australasian Antarctic Expedition (1911–14) under Douglas Mawson, who named them for Walter H. Hannam, a wireless telegrapher with the expedition.[1]
