    Went with a mate and enjoyed the day. Great to see the animals and all of the fauna around. It was pretty busy but still plenty of room to see everything at a leisurely stroll. We had breakfast as wel...  more »

    Definitely the highlight of Port Moresby, this park was like an island of green and calm in a sea of graffiti, corrugated iron and broken windows. Some awesome animals, I especially appreciated the wa...  more »

  • Perfect place in nature but be careful and take something against mosquitos
  • Nice place to relax in Port Moresby. For some reason City residents don't flock here so its peaceful and not crowded
  • Such a beautiful place, pretty cheap for what you get from it, awesome variety of animals and different parts of the park. Absolutely recommend to visit this place.
  • A good place for team get together, it would've been nice if it was away from the main highway, noise pollution defeats the purpose of the place.
  • The botanical garden has long been one of the most popular place for local city residents to hang out. The garden contains a small tropical rainforest with board works running through it, making you believe that left you have left the city behind for a moment. It also has small zoo made up of local native animal species and park areas were people occasionally host party and weddings. The garden has and will be a local favourite due to the facelift that place as got over the last few years.

Where to stay in Port Moresby

Hotels are dotted rather haphazardly throughout Port Moresby, and tend to be somewhat expensive. Several four- and five-star accommodations cluster on the small peninsula also called Port Moresby, but known to locals simply as "Town." The nearby Ela Beach ranks as one of Port Moresby's most scenic areas and a popular recreational spot. The suburb Boroko is most convenient for public transport, but this once-bustling commercial center has lost much of its luster in recent years. Most hotels will arrange pick-up and drop-off from the airport.
