A place called Morinore

According to some sources,the men of Numenor discovered a continent called Morinore (although it is a Quenya calque for Mordor it is not Mordor, it should be a place in the region of Australia/ New Zealnd/Papua).

What is known about the place? In MERP wikia it is called Southernesse but did not find anything relevant about it...

I'm pretty sure that "Morinore" is actually the Dark Lands. This would make sense, because the Numenoreans went there several times on their traveles. Also, according to several sources, Earendil (pretty much the first Numenorean) went there on his travels, and may have even stayed Ungoliant there.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
