The Debenham Islands are a group of islands and reef rocks in Marguerite Bay west of the Antarctic Peninsula . They lie between Millerand Island and the Fallières coast of Graham Land .

They were discovered by participants in the British Graham Land Expedition (1934-1937) led by the Australian polar explorer John Rymill . The base camp of the expedition was meanwhile on Barry Island in the middle of this group. The islands are named after the Australian polar explorer Frank Debenham (1883-1965), who was a member of the advisory board for Rymill's research trip.
