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 volcano that rises about 300 m above sea level and has strong thermal activity. Boiling springs and a geyser are found along the coast and a 45-m-high geyser was observed at a sandbank 8 km offshore in 1863.
