Believe it or not, Cos, there is even a website dedicated to the volcanoes of Australia.

Called Volcano Alive it says you needn't worry about too much about  being frazzled to a crisp in your sleep because it claims that only a couple are lying doggo and may erupt. Just make sure you stay away from Victoria.

"Most volcanoes are extinct, but there is a province in Victoria which is dormant, and may erupt in the future.
Australia's currently active volcanoes are Heard Island, and McDonald Islands."

There is though a worryingly l-o-n-g list of other bits and bobs about volcanoes, dormant one, tsunamis etc.

Clicking on each and any one of the following entries in their actual website (see end for link) will bring you a whole page on each entry.

Anyway, here's their list, Cosmo, most of which (but not all) are sleeping. Time to emigrate?
