Photo Gallery

The small forested island of Narage in the Bismarck Sea north of western New Britain is the northernmost of the Witu (or Vitu) Islands. Narage is the summit of a Pleistocene stratovolcano that rises to 307 m above sea level and displays strong thermal activity. Boiling springs and a geyser are found along the coast; in 1863 a geyser 45 m high was observed at a sandbank 8 km offshore.
