The land form of each island varies dramatically, some of the islands such as Vanua Levu, are made of rolling plains which can be used to grow sugar cane, but some contain jagged mountains and hot springs. It is these variations that make the landforms on Fiji unique.

Many of the volcanoes around the Fiji islands still have thermal activity and they are all diverse in shape. The islands contain lava cones, cinder cones. The biggest shield volcano making up one of the islands contains over 100 cones. The lava from the volcanoes have left the ground fertile, allowing rich rainforest to grow.
