Back now again to the Courts Furniture Roundabout. If you continue completely around this roundabout and turn left at Courts Furniture, you will be heading toward the city of Port Moresby.

As you travel along this part of the road there are quite a few landmarks to remember such as :
  • Courts
  • Orica
  • PNG Arts (well renowned artefact shop)
  • Fotofast (for developing of photographs and framing)
  • Stop & Shop - another supermarket
  • Waigani Drive - Government area of Port Moresby

As you drive you will notice an overpass. If you turn left off the Poreporana Highway, you will end up in Waigani Drive.

If you continue to the left you will end up in Boroko. If you go around the roundabout to the right, you will head towards the Holiday Inn and the Government offices at Waigani. If you continue on the road to the right, you will end up passing the PNG University and finally end up in Gerehu.

Once you are established in Port Moresby and are looking for a reliable company to look after your motor vehicle, The Auto Clinic is situated by turning left at the next major intersection along this road.

If you continue straight along, you will come to the Holiday Inn on your left and Boroko Motors on your right.

The Australian Embassy is also in this area of Port Moresby and you turn right at this roundabout. If you were to go straight through the roundabout, you would end up at the back of Parliament House and the Golf Club or the Arts Centre.:
