A narrow, bold peninsula, 25 mi long and 3 mi wide, projecting SE from Mount Discovery into Ross Ice Shelf. Discovered by the BrNAE (1901-04) which named it for Minna, the wife of Sir Clements Markham, the "father" of the expedition (https://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/gaz/scar/display_name.cfm?gaz_id=128940).
