Lae War Cemetery is one of the major WW11 cemeteries in the country by Malum Nalu.

Immaculately maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the Lae War Cemetery contains 2,818 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 444 of them unidentified. The majority, over 2000, are from Australia with others from Great Britain, India, and Papua New Guinea. They now rest peacefully in a picture of tranquility in the tropical greenery of the Botanical Gardens. On dawn on ANZAC Day each year, the Lae community comes together to remember the many men who gave up their lives, to protect their countries and their people. A visit to Lae would not be complete without a visit to the cemetery, which is located next to the Botanical Gardens in the centre of Lae. It is also a very emotional and moving experience.
