Gony Point is a high tussock-covered point 0.5 miles (0.8 km) southwest of Cardno Point, on the southeast side of Bird Island, South Georgia. Surveyed by the SGS in the period 1951-57, and named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in 1963. Gony (also spelled gooney) is an old sailors' name for the wandering albatross (Diomedea exulans), which breeds on Bird Island.
