The Hunt Nunataks (70°11′S 64°53′E / 70.183°S 64.883°E / -70.183; 64.883Coordinates: 70°11′S 64°53′E / 70.183°S 64.883°E / -70.183; 64.883) are a linear group of nunataks, 2 nautical miles (4 km) long, lying just east of Mount Bechervaise in the Athos Range of the Prince Charles Mountains, Antarctica. They were plotted by the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions from air photos obtained in 1965, and named by the Antarctic Names Committee of Australia for P. Hunt, a senior helicopter pilot with the Prince Charles Mountains survey party in 1969.[1]
