Japanese and Allied war memorials in and around Wewak

by Malum Nalu

Wewak, apart from being one of the best places in Papua New Guinea to holiday or live in, is also significant for its WWII history.

Japanese and Allied war memorials in and around Wewak, and remnant Japanese war bunkers, tunnels and wrecks are of particular interest to war veterans and their descendents and to historians.

The Wom War Memorial Park, war relics at But village, and the Japanese look out at Mission Hill (Boy's Town) are the most prominent WW11 attractions.

The lush tropical vegetation on the foothills to the south both provides a magnificent backdrop to the town.

Wewak was occupied by the Japanese 8th Army during WW11.
