ANZAC 2019 Tour Port Moresby
The Gallipoli of the Pacific ANZAC Tour – 23 – 26 April 2019 Commemorate ANZAC Day where it all began!
Semi escorted 4 day package to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. In 1942, along a narrow track over the rugged mountains of Papua New Guinea, 625 Australians were killed and over 1000 wounded… The fighting there, against a Japanese invasion force, was perhaps the most significant battle fought by Australians in World War II. Port Moresby was vital to the defence of Australia. If they took Port Moresby the Japanese planned to begin a bombing offensive against north Queensland and, had they decided to invade Australia, the invasion would have been launched from Port Moresby. Just off the road from Port Moresby at the southern end of the Kokoda track is Bomana, the largest war cemetery in the Pacific. It contains 3779 graves. There are 3069 known and 237 unknown Australians from the fighting in New Guinea together with 443 Allied soldiers sailors and airmen.
