The low-lying Sessagara Hills, located near the mouth of the Uiaka River, south of Collingwood Bay, is a small alkalic andesitic volcanic field in eastern Papua New Guinea. The age of the most recent eruption is not known, although the field clearly included Holocene volcanic activity (Smith, 1981). Two of the cones north of the Goropu Mountains display preserved summit craters and were probably active during the Holocene; other cones may be of Pleistocene age.
