Salamaua and the Black Cat Trail

Hello to all of you out there, from all corners of the world, particularly those of you who have some connection with Papua New Guinea, in particular, Salamaua in the Morobe province.

I am part Salamaua, Morobe province, Papua New Guinea, as my mother comes from there.

Salamaua is a place with a lot of history from the days of the early Lutheran missionaries, the gold rush days of the 1920's and 1930's, and the dark days of World War 11.

In honour of Salamaua, I have created two new blogs, one on Salamaua and one on the infamous Black Cat Trail, which stretches from there to the gold fields of Wau and Bulolo.

I am starting these blogs with the intention of running my own tour company specialising in Salamaua and the Black Cat Trail in the very near future.

The Salamaua blog is and the Black Cat Trail blog is

Enjoy and get back to me if you have any feedback, want more information or have have some stories and pictures you want to share.
