Fourteen kilometres west of Wewak, Cape Wom International Memorial Park is the site of a wartime airstrip and where the Japanese surrender took place. There’s a war memorial flanked by flagpoles on the spot where Japanese Lieutenant General Adachi signed the surrender documents and handed his sword to Australian Major General Robertson on 13 September 1945. On the west side of the cape there’s a good reef for snorkelling and a nice stretch of sand for swimming.
There’s no transport that reaches here – you could catch a PMV bound for Dagua (a village further west) at the Wewak main market and get off at the turn-off to the cape at Suara. From the turn-off it’s a 3km walk. There’s a ranger at the gates but you shouldn’t come here alone.
