Alotau, the capital of Milne Bay Province, is located in the southeast of Papua New Guinea. It sits on the northern shore of Milne Bay and falls under the jurisdiction of Alotau Urban LLG. Alotau holds historical significance as the site of the first land defeat faced by the invading Japanese army in the Pacific War in 1942, preceding the Kokoda Track battle. A memorial park at the former battleground commemorates this event. In 1969, Alotau became the provincial capital following its relocation from Samarai. To reach Alotau, travelers can take a road connecting Ulumani, which passes by the local Gurney Airport. The airport is named after Squadron Leader Charles Raymond Gurney from the Royal Australian Air Force, who lost his life in the area in 1942. The airport is located 12 kilometers away from the town. Alotau serves as the gateway to the Milne Bay Province, which is home to some of the world’s most remote island communities.
