Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands - Port Moresby (Chapter)
This is the Port Moresby chapter from Lonely Planet’s Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands guidebook.
First-time visitors to Port Moresby can find it confronting and even intimidating, but it is the South Pacific’s largest city and while the sprawling capital isn’t among the world’s great metropolises, it does have its own charms.
- gaze up at the towering, mosaic facade of Parliament Haus, done in Sepik haus tambaran (spirit house) style
- see the spectacular orchids’ explosion of form and colour at the National Botanical Gardens
- discover cultural treasures tucked away inside the little-visited National Museum
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Sights, Activities, Tours, Festivals & Events, Sleeping, Eating, Entertainment, Shopping, Port Moresby & Around and Sogeri Rd.
