Latest pictures of Daru, Western province

By MALUM NALU

I flew to Daru last Friday and travelled more than 200 miles up the mighty Fly River by boat for the launch of the new Western province vessel, mv Fly Warrior, at Sturt Island yesterday and at Obo today. 
From there, a long helicopter ride to Kiunga, and then Tabubul.
During my short stopover in Daru, during which I spent some quality time with my tambus before catching a dinghy for the mouth of the Fly, I took these pictures of the forgotten Western province "capital".

Why chop down these shade trees?
The rundown colonial post office at Daru, Western province, seriously needs to be replaced, as seen last Friday.

One of the positive developments in Daru...the new K10 million wharf trestle nears completion. It is funded by PNG Sustainable Development Program (PNGSDP), and built by contractor Curtain Brothers.
