Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Chudleigh Volcano

An extinct volcano and lava-field province, of about 680 m elevation, on the Kennedy Development Road, south of Lyndhurst, north Queensland covering an area of about 2,000 sq km. A lava flow extends about 100 km down the Einasleigh River from Barker's Crater.

There are 46 volcanic structures in the province, such as composite cones, pyroclastic cones, lava shield and a wide lave plain. Pysroclastic cones are Airstrip Crater and Sapphire Hill.

The area was last volcanically active about 250,000 years ago.
