One of the first things you will see once you leave Jackson's Airport, is a service station on the left hand side of the road near the first roundabout.

Here, people sit day in day out selling their plastic wares, even in the rain which doesnt happen very much in Port Moresby.

Yes, Port Moresby has the lowest rainfall in the whole of Papua New Guinea. If you take the time to visit our country, please make sure you travel out into other areas so you can truly experience what it is like to feel you are in a tropical country.

One of the first major landmarks is the Big Rooster building on the left hand side of the road, near the second roundabout :

As you will notice, signposts clearly point you in the right direction towards the city of Port Moresby or which ever direction you wish to go :

If you were to turn 2nd left of this roundabout, you would be heading to what is frequently referred to as East Boroko.

Murray School is another landmark not far after you turn towards East Boroko :

Murray International School Roundabout. The Boroko United Church is also just off this roundabout as well.

Roadworks are currently underway where the 5 mile traffic lights used to be.

Suggest if you are new to Port Moresby that you avoid this area unless you know exactly where you are heading you will be forced to slow down and could become a target of criminals.

Until you know you way around our city, best to keep to the main Poreporana Highway as we want to keep you safe and away from harms way.
