Dr Lin Sutherland
in his publication "The Volcanic Earth" maintains
the volcanic area in his map below is dormant rather
Crater Lakes, Cinder Cones, plugs and waterfalls all
owe their presence to past volcanic activity.
The most recent
activity was between 10,000 and 20,000 years ago -
well within living memory - aboriginal legends
incorporate fire and heat from a shaking ground.
