The Mundua Islands are the peaks of several basaltic volcanoes which form Mundua, Wingoru, Garove, and Narage islands.
The largest volcano forms the westerm tip of the 7 km long Mundua island and Wingoru island immediately to the west. It is located 85 km NW of Willaumez Peninsula in New Britain, Papua New Guinea.
