Port Moresby (PNG) cruise port

  • As a trade center, the town emerged in the 2nd half of the 19th century. During WW2 (1939-1945) it was the 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, the downtown has no restaurants and nightlife 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. The city's waterfront area was redeveloped with apartments, shopping centers, bars and restaurants.
