There are an enormous number of bits and pieces from the war scattered around Wewak.

These include unexploded bombs, and every now and then someone burning the bush sets one off.

The replacement of Wewak's water drainage project frequently turns up munitions or aerial bombs.

Mission Hill, located south of the Catholic Mission headquarters, also has a significant history.

The first Catholic missionaries settled on Mission Hill in 1912.

They, however, were forced to leave when the Japanese arrived during WW11 and occupied the hill as one of the strategic posts of the Japanese army after the fall of Wewak Point.
