Port Moresby, also known as Pom City or Moresby, serves as the capital and largest city of Papua New Guinea. Situated on the Gulf of Papua along the southwestern coast of the Papuan Peninsula on New Guinea Island, it has emerged as a bustling trade hub over the years. The city’s strategic location made it a target during World War II. Today, Port Moresby stands as a prominent city in the southwestern Pacific region, excluding Australia and New Zealand.
With a population of approximately 383,000, Port Moresby is home to a diverse community. The Motu-Koitabu people, traditional landowners, have inhabited the area for centuries, and their representation is through the Motu Koita Assembly. The city experiences a tropical savanna climate, characterised by consistent temperatures throughout the year. It has a dry season from June to November and a wet season from December to May, with an average annual rainfall of just over 1,000 millimeters.
