Rabaul Holidays

Sitting in the shadow of Mt Tavurvur, Rabaul is a coastal town in East New Britain Province. The town suffered devastating damage in 1994 when Mt Tavurvur erupted engulfing the town in ash and destroying many buildings. The devastation was so absolute that the town was largely relocated to nearby Kokopo town but some people chose to remain and walk streets many metres thick in residual ash. The region is also strewn with remnants from WWII including the rusting hulks of weapons barges hidden in caves dug into the hillside and a network of caves used as supply storage and even living accommodation complete with hospital wing. Visit the New Guinea Club and Museum and ascend to the Vulcanology Observatory for panoramic views of the town below.
