The eroded Pliocene to lower Pleistocene Karioi stratovolcano lies along the Tasman Sea and is the westernmost volcano of the Alexandra volcanic group. Potassium-Argon (K-Ar) dates for Karioi itself range from 2.92-2.16 million years ago (Ma), but scoria cones, tuff rings and basaltic lava flows primarily on the northern and eastern flanks are in part younger than the youngest K-Ar date of 1.8 Ma (Briggs 1983).
