Bomana War Cemetery, Port Moresby

(4.9/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Pay respects at Bomana War Cemetery, a site that serves as the resting place for about 4,000 Papua New Guinea and Australian soldiers who died fighting the Japanese during World War II. The thousands of white marble headstones stand in long rows across a green field, and many relatives of the deceased travel here to leave flowers on the lost soldiers' graves. While it's true that Americans also died during the battle, most of their bodies were returned to U.S. soil. Also look for the Port Moresby Memorial behind the cemetery that commemorates the fallen soldiers.
