Walo volcano is not actually a volcano, but a geothermal field 5.5 km from Walo village, Bangula Bay on the north coast of New Britain. There are no exposed volcanic rocks, but it contains fumaraoles and hot springs.
The Walo thermal area is connected to the nearby Sulu Range volcanoes (Karai volcano). The Smithsonian Institution counts Walo as a subfeature of the Sulu Range volcano.
The Walo fumaroles have been used by locals for cooking food.

2006 increased activity
Following the first two weeks of unrest at Karai volcano during mid-July 2006, a report by the Rabaul Volcano Observatory (RVO) stated that during 31 July to 2 August, the hydrothermal activity at Walo were undergoing unusually strong activity. This included expelled mud, the emergence of geysers, and abnormal quantities of steam.
