Lae City - Morobe Province - take a drive with pngbd !

Lae, the capital of Morobe is home to a diverse range of people, indigenous cultures and has a lush green environment due to its 5 metres per annum rainfall. The Huon Gulf curves majestically around it's shores making Lae a picturesque seaside setting against the tough and rugged terrain which hugs the coast. A town from the gold rush era, Lae is the gateway to the Highlands and the Islands with its central location near the Huon Gulf. With the influx of many migrants from Highlands and Madang regions, the town has grown to become the industrial capital of Papua New Guinea. Connected to the Highlands by the Okuk Highway (PNG's longest road link), Lae is a vitally important part of the country's business and agricultural sectors. Good harbour facilities, a broad industrial base and other major assets. Lae has many historical memorials including that of 1930's American aviator, Amelia Earhart, who was last seen flying out of Lae airport on her way back to the USA, before her plane disappeared. World War II relics are preserved in many sites as a memory of the occupation by the Japanese. the most important of all being the treasured War Memorial to servicemen and women.
