Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea514 contributions246 helpful votes
The only park/forest type recreational facility within the city limits, the former botanical gardens offer rain forest, picknick areas as well as wildlife that has mostly been rescued, such as tree kangaroos and other endemic animals and birds. There are efforts underway to breed the endangered pig-nosed turtle. Some have already been released back into their natural habitats. A must visit if you pass through Port Moresby.

Thanks for visiting the Nature Park. Our cafe is now run by Gateway Hotels & Apartments, one of Port Moresby's leading hotels so the cafe food quality and service is exceptionally high and enables the Park to also provide function catering for park events and customer venue hire bookings. I also love the cassowaries! We have one of the largest collections of cassowaries in the world. Many of these have been rescued from the Park after living in very poor conditions so to be able to walk around on the raised boardwalk, amongst our rainforest and see the cassowaries is pretty special. Thanks again for visiting and look forward to seeing you back soon.

Nature Park is and has been one of the oldest park in Port Moresby. It is also right next to Gerehu surbub. It caters for animals which are endangered. The environment is super warm with the birds chirping, while the snakes pill off their scaly skin. On one end, you have a room of snakes which are long and thick in width. You might just get chills from looking at it. It is suitable for everyone to visit, especially when going on a picnic or having a child's birthday party outdoor. There's no danger and children can go to and fro and see the animals in their cages.

Thank you for your comments. We love our reptile house! It is the only one in all of Papua New Guinea and is a great facility for educating people on how amazing and important PNG's reptiles are. There really is no other place in PNG to get close to reptiles so it is definitely a highlight for people at the Park. Thanks again for visiting. And we look forward to seeing you again at the Nature Park soon.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on TripAdvisor. Sorry to hear that you think the Park is looking a bit worn. 2020 has definitely been a challenging year for us all and COVID-19 restrictions have impacted our ability to have our full team at the Park. However we do have a strong maintenance and repairs schedule in Park so am confident that any issues you were concerned about have either been already addressed or will be done now that the team is all back at work. As a charity, your visit helps us to continue building the Park and keeping it up to international standards so thanks for visiting and supporting our cause.
