Introducing Popondetta

Popondetta is a ragged town, without much appeal for tourists, although some come to see the area’s WWII history – Buna and Gona are within an easy day trip. The Oro Guesthouse and Birdwing Butterfly Lodge can provide information and help arrange guides for trips to Buna or Gona. The looming 1585m Mt Lamington is currently off-limits to bushwalkers following heavy rains that have washed out the walking trails.

Popondetta is not a place to be wandering around alone at night.
