It stretches eastward into Nares Strait, north of Dobbin Bay. Mount Stevens lies in the center of the peninsula,[1] Scoresby Bay is found on its central coast, and Cape Louis Napoleon is located at the end of the 32 km (20 mi) long peninsula.[2]

The Geomagnetic North Pole is located on the Darling Peninsula.[3]
