Lorengau Things to Do

  • The Post Office

    Stamps were original, but to send a postcard to Spain was too expensive. There is no Internet cafe in Lorengau.

  • Lorengau Harbour

    Lorengau did not have a lot of tourist activity when I visited the area. Papua New Guinea was just too far away for most people to visit, and there were definitely better attractions at a more affordable price elsewhere in this amazing country.My work activities at the two diesel power stations did not allow a lot of time for peaceful sight-seeing,...

  • Nice Stamps

    In the days before the internet and cell-phones, most communciations with family in either Canada or England was by Air Mail. A long-distance phone call would be made for really special occassions. Even local telephone calls in PNG were charged by the minute, as is the custom in England. As for the letters, I would regularly send photos and updates...

Lorengau Off The Beaten Path

  • Papua New Guinea Naval Base

    Located almost next-door to Lorengau, and joined by road/bridge, was the local Papua New Guinea Naval Base at Lombrum on the small Los Negros Island. The base had its own diesel generating station which the PNG Electricity Commission also looked after. As a result, I had a chance to tour this part of the Admiralty Islands as well.World War 2...

  • Keeping the Lights On!

    Of course the reason that I was making trips like this one was to check up on and fix any problems that the local power stations were having. This photo shows a typical interior of a small diesel station, this one being located in Lorengau with the job of providing power to the entire big island (well, at least as far as the power lines ran). It...

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Admiralty Islands are located about 350 km (220 miles) from Madang, the nearest large airport on the north coast of the PNG mainland. As a result, it is a major exercise if you really want to go this far! Once you are there, diving around the various small coral islands is likely the tourist activity of choice. The Equator runs along the top of this photograph, placing these islands at about 2 degrees South.
