Morobe Province

Lae is situated in the Morobe Province and is accessible by road by many parts of New Guinea.

Morobe Province curves around the tropical waters of the Huon Gulf. The Saruwaged Mountains, rising from the sea at the tip of the Huon Peninsula are blanketed by tangled and impenetrable rainforest.

To the south-west, the fertile Markham Valley rests between equally awesome ranges while the waters between Huon Peninsula and New Britain are dotted with volcanic islands.

The Hinterland and coast of Morobe Province offers spectacular sightseeing, a wonderland of flora and fauna and numerous walking tracks, particularly near the Wau and Bulolo areas. A network of roads connects the capital city of Lae with Madang to the north west, through the markham Valley to the Highlands in the west and south to the Highland areas around Wau and Bulolo.

Lae is the second largest city in Papua New Guinea and was a tinymission station before the 1920's gold rush at Wau transformed it into a major port and industrial centre. It was the last place to farewell famous pioneering American aviator Emilia Earhart, as she took off on one of the final legs of her round the world flight before disappearing without a trace.

Lae was also the strategic base for the Japanese during World War II. The graves of thousands of allied soldiers killed in battle can be visited at the Lae War Cemetery, situated within the grounds of Lae's Botanical Gardens.

Known as the "Gardne City", modern day Lae is an attractive, tropical city well serviced by banks, international standard hotels, department stores, local markets and street stalls selling produce and artefacts.

Cattle Grazing

Papua New Guinea imports most of its beef and milk. In 1900 there were about 250 cattle (bulmakau in tok Pisin) mainly brought in by German missionaries. Although the number had grown to about 30,000 by 1940, there was no real cattle industry before World War II.

Although the country's surface area is about 470,000 sq km, only about five per cent is considered suitable for high production graziing.
