Kirkby Glacier is a glacier, 20 miles (30 km) in length. This glacier drains the central Anare Mountains of Antarctica and flows northwest to the sea 3 miles (5 km) from Cape North, and just north of Arthurson Bluff, northern Victoria Land.
Discovery and naming
Kirkby Glacier was named by the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) for Sydney L. Kirkby, a surveyor on the ANARE Thala Dan cruise of 1962, led by Phillip Law, which explored the area along this coast.
