A biography of the Australian continent 

Nulla Volcano - Extinct volcano southwest 165 km of Townsville, north Queensland 

Situated on the eastern flank of the Great Dividing Range to the west of Townsville in Queensland, it covers an area of about 7,500 km2. There are 46 known vents, the lava from most of which flowed to the northeast towards the Burdekin Valley. The Toomba vent produced a lava flow 120 km long about 13,000 years ago.
