This sparsely-vegetated lava flow appears to be the youngest within Dakataua caldera. It may have been emplaced at the time of the latest known eruption, which took place during the 1890s from the post-caldera cone, Mount Makalia. This is one of several young volcanic features occupying a 7-km-long peninsula. Photo by Russell Blong, 1988 (Macquarie University).
