Silversea Luxury Cruises A WEWAK

The Sepik region of Papua New Guinea is a wonderland of islands, beautiful coastlines, river systems and mountain ranges. It is the site of Japanese surrender in September 1945, and a history rich in human endeavours. First colonised by Germans in 1885, the area soon attracted mercenaries, explorers, traders, labour recruiters, and missionaries. But it is the timeless history of the Sepik people themselves which provide the mystery and exotic folklore of this fascinating area. View more

Wewak is an attractive palm-fringed town which felt the might of Japanese troops who “discovered” its isolation and hidden ports around Kairiru Island. Many war memorials remain around the outskirts of the plantations and a Japanese gun still points from the eastern end of the island. Wewak is the capital of East Sepik province and located not far from Cape Wom. Cape Wom was the site of the Japanese surrender to allied-forces, where Lieutenant General Adachi signed the documents and handed his sword to Major General Robertson on 13th September 1945. A war memorial marks the site and the wartime airstrip is still in place. Another memorial in town has been erected at the site of the Japanese war graves and nearby is the Japanese/Papua New Guinea Peace Park.

Japanese Surrender

Papua New Guinea is a very-low-income country with very basic infrastructure, and vastly different to the western culture mentality. Local conditions may be challenging; therefore, we urge flexibility and understanding as we visit unique and somewhat remote destinations. Coaches, guides, hotels, restaurants, equipment, and services are the best-available in the area, but may not be up to the standards of those found on other excursions. We thank you for your understanding.


Explore the wartime past of Wewak during this scenic and informative excursion to a trio of significant World War II sites.


Wewak, Mission Hill, Panoramic Views of the Region, Sea and Wewak Town

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to the top of Mission Hill, a memorial to the brave soldiers that fought in World War II. Upon arrival, take in spectacular panoramic views of the region, Wewak Town and out to sea.


Japanese Gun Mounts

After a photo stop at Mission Hill, re-board your coach and continue on to the nearby Japanese Gun mounts, which number 11 in all. Wewak and several islands off the coast were occupied by the Japanese for some time during World War ll, and heavy artillery was sheltered into the mountainside in case a defence of the area was needed at any point in time. Following your visit to the Japanese Gun Mounts, re-board your coach and head west to Cape Wom Memorial Park.


Cape Wom Memorial Park, Wom Beach, Free Time, Relaxing, Swimming

Located on the site of an old missionary airstrip, this park is dedicated to the surrender of the Imperial Japanese forces in the Wewak area by General Hutazo Adachi to Australian General H.C.H. Robertson. The surrender took place on Sept. 13, 1945, 11 days after Japan formally surrendered in Tokyo Harbour on the battleship USS Missouri to end World War II. During your visit, some free time is made available to enjoy a refreshment, go for a leisurely stroll along the beach, relax under the shade of a palm tree and/or take an optional, invigorating dip in the ocean. At the conclusion of your tour, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.

Maur Cultural Village
