As the country’s capital you will soon find that Port Moresby is home to a number of impressive sites. No travel itinerary to the city could be complete without a trip to Parliament Haus, opened by Prince Charles in 1984.

Considering ‘Haus’ is German for ‘House’ you can immediately see how the city’s past has influenced it to become the place that it is today. Delve further back in history by taking a trip to the National Museum and Art Gallery, where you can learn more about the colonial and postcolonial history of the country.

A pocket of greenery in this bustling metropolis, the Botanical Gardens feature impressive orchid collections and various birds of paradise.

Why not visit one of the craft markets and explore the authentic clothing and accessories, or head over to the PNG Arts, which offers visitors the chance to explore an array of arts and crafts in a huge warehouse style interior. Another point of interest has got to be the Hanuabada, meaning ‘Big Village’. Here you can see a collection of houses built on stilts over the Moresby Harbor, which tell of the city’s history and early inhabitants.
