Madang is situated along the northern coast of Papua New Guinea.  The coastline of Madang lies along a geological fault line which is why Manam, Karkar and Long Volcanoes are still active today. Although small, the town has modern urban facilities which make it a suitable destination for meetings and conferences and boasts a Cultural Centre displaying historical artefacts.

 

Madang is a large province and has one of the most beautiful deep water harbours in the South Pacific, with a backdrop of steep mountains, pristine rainforests teeming with exotic wildlife and lush tropical vegetation.  Coconut (copra), cocoa and vanilla plantations thrive along the lush coastline.

 

This area is the most popular location in Papua New Guinea for diving and is world famous for its coral reefs having excellent visibility, making for good diving all year.  Being close to the equator the town and coastal regions experience uniformly warm temperatures all year round. 

 

During World War II, Madang was the centre of heavy fighting and there are 34 sunken ships in Hansa Bay, near Bogia which attract diving enthusiasts.

 

There are two berths and one barge ramp at Madang:
