It's a bit out of the way, but the drive out to Varirata is very much part of the experience. Driving on serpentine roads scaling the mountains trying to dodge potholes and admiring the view.
Varirata itself has seen better days, but it's still in good shape. There's walking trails that'll lead to some beautiful panoramic views over the countryside and give you a real feel for the Port Moresby area. There's a barbecue area for having a nice picnic out in the open, and if it hasn't been raining the leeches aren't a problem :-)
