Post Living costs in PNG

I am trying to get true a sense of living and living costs in PNG. I've been offered a senior lecturer position at Unitech, Lae. The salary compared to my current salary and what I would receive in the U.S. is impossible but I've been assured that a family of four could live comfortably on it (about 30,000 USD). I very am intrigued by PNG and the adventure and possibilities and would like to take this job, but cannot fathom how I could survive on this, with grown kids and two still in U.S. colleges. I also understand that there is a 35% tax on top of this. As much as I want to do this, I am unable to understand how anyone can live on this salary. How does this compare to other similar professional salaries in PNG?
I would like to bring in my car (older Land Rover). Does anyone have information about whom to contact regarding import duties etc.?

Thank you for any information
