"Goodenough is a roughly circular volcanic island that is the westernmost of the D'Entrecasteaux Islands off the NE tip of Papua New Guinea. Several basaltic-andesite and andesitic Holocene eruptive centers that may be only a few hundred years old are located around the margins of fault-bounded metamorphic rocks that form the central part of Goodenough Island. The youngest volcanic features, which include the Walilagi Cones, are located at the SE end of the island. These well-developed ash cones and blocky lava flows on the northern and eastern flanks of the Bwaido Peninsula may have erupted within the past few hundred years."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
