Die Anare Mountains sind eine Gebirgskette an der Nordküste von Viktorialand in der Antarktis.

Sie wird im Norden und Osten vom Pazifischen Ozean, im Westen von Lillie-Gletscher und im Süden vom Ebbe- und vom Dennistoun-Gletscher begrenzt. Die erste Entdeckung des Gebirges erfolgte durch James Clark Ross im Jahr 1841. Wichtige Berge in den Anare Mountains sind der Mount Kelly mit 1110 Metern und der Mount Burch mit 1400 Metern Höhe.

Die erste fotografische Erfassung des Gebirges erfolgte 1946/47 durch die Operation Highjump der US-Marine, eine weitere Erforschung und Vermessung durch das United States Geological Survey 1962/63 mit Hilfe von Hubschraubern. Benannt wurde das Gebirge 1963/64 nach einer der Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE), die 1962 unter der Leitung von Phillip Law stattfand und die Küste erforschte.
