Port Moresby (PNG) cruise port

  • As trade centre, the town emerged in the 2nd half of 19th century. During WW2 (1939-1945) it was prime objective for conquest by Imperial Japanese forces (1942–1943).
  • The first European discovered it in 1873 - Captain John Moresby (1830-1922), naming the settlement after his father, Admiral Fairfax Moresby (1786-1877). The current city forms National Capital District, including PNG's main business area known as "Town".
  • Since the 1990s, city's downton has no restaurants and night life venues. The affluent housing region north of downtown remains, though there are currently few residential areas with substantial apartment buildings.
  • In recent years, Port Moresby enjoys an economical boom, especially in real estate - new office towers, housing, shopping malls. City's waterfront area was redeveloped with apartments, shopping centers, bars and restaurants.
