You will not miss its distinctive shape from the air. We stopped by on our way from the airport to see it from the front gate. It’s the centre of male dominated PNG politics, while some parts of PNG are matrilineal society.

One of the highlights of Port Moresby! A good place to spend some time in the gardens and the lagoon. If you are lucky you may be able to get a view of the inside of the Parliament and meet some members.

Our driver was not too sure how to access the building, but I simply pushed the left-hand door, walked in, and asked the attendant if we could visit. We were given a friendly guided tour, but, alas, no photographs are allowed. The building is beautiful,...More

I made the visit on Saturday so the area was closed to the public and could only be visited from the outside, however it is one of the few visits to be made in the city and well worth it.
