There are no active volcanoes on the Australian mainland or in its island state of Tasmania.

For thousands of years, the only active volcano on Australian territory was Big Ben, which is located on Heard Island, one of Australia's external territories. More recently, there has been considerable volcanic activity on the nearby McDonald Islands, also Australian territory.
