The world’s largest processor of an edible seed, in the Proteaceae family, is named after No 1.
The 2000 census reports 0 residents on No 2, so sadly no festivities there on Ist February 2013!
No 3 is a prime example of an active volcano that poses a grave threat to the local population.
Local magic, sand art, ritual dance, and tiki carving, No 4 is set on a fascinating tropical island.
Despite the bitter ambient temperature it is possible to take a warm water bath in the sand on No 5.
Two foreign scientists mysteriously vanished without a trace whilst studying the caldera of No 6.
Tragically, all the miners perished during an eruption on No 7 but the lucky camp puss survived!
