    A Second Life

    Not everything associated with the Second World War was a complete write-off. Some of the old infantry landing barges had been converted into small freighters used in the coastal trade that was so important to this area of the world. Here, one of them pulls up to the shore in Rabaul harbour to be loaded (via it's front 'troop landing' ramp) with it's next cargo for some small 'out-port' destination.

    The local carrier (Air Niugini) is the best way to get to Rabaul. It's about 1.5 hours from Port Moresby, and about 20 minutes from Kimbe Bay area.

    Flights are scheduled daily, but you should try to book in advance - or at the very least, be aware of the time tables.

    The port

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Feb 20, 2015

    Very convenient to move around by the cheaper and as a real traveler. There are weekly boats to Buka island (I missed for 2 days that boat and was forced to fly), and there are also ferrys to the south of New Britain island because there are no raods, you must take the ferry (or fly) to get there.

    For getting around Rabaul when no PMV's are available stand by the side of the road and wait for a lift. Unlike Moresby i felt safe hitching in Rabaul.
