Woitape is situated 25 minutes flying time in a small aeroplane, Twin Otter north of Port Moresby.

There are several small villages surrounding Woitape, Fane, Ononge, Yongai and Koisipe.

Woitape is in easy reach of Mt. Albert Edward, 13,000 feet for those of you feeling like hiking through rainforest, mossforest, alpine grassland and glacial valleys and lakes:

This famous Catholic Church (Ononge Mission started in 1913), church built in 1917, was blown down by cyclone justin.

To this day they have not rebuilt the church, but the surrounding buildings remain:
