Chritos, You say you have no battlefields near you in Australia. What is travel like between Oz & PNG? Is there much to see up there regards a battlefield tour? Geoff, You've been up there haven't you? There are tours to Kakoda and Buna etc however there is not a lot of "evidence" that I saw and you don't travel off the beaten track in PNG as it is very dangerous. I have been to Port Moresby, Wewak, Lae, Madang where there are mostly shipwrecks for the divers at the latter two places. Rabaul is completely different with the huge caves high up and coastal Artillery (reminded me of Guns of Navarone) that was there waiting for the seaborne invasion that never came as expected in 44-45. 100,000 Japanese were sitting on their thumbs until the surrender. Many memorials and cemeteries in PNG. The Solomons (Guadalcanal) has aircraft remnants all over the island and a huge diving business for aircraft etc, some only 200 metres off shore.
