Hansa Bay is located on the coast of East Sepik province in Papua New Guinea. It is 50 kms south-east of the Sepik River with Manam Island volcano, one of the country?s most active, just 20 kms offshore. Hansa Bay is a pristine, un-crowded, less-visited body of water where war wreckage of 35 Japanese freighters and US aircraft lie. During the New Guinea campaign, Hansa Bay was a major Japanese naval base and transit station, between the Wewak region and south eastern bases. The airfields and encampments of Awar and Nubia were also located nearby. On 12 June 1944 the Australian 35th Battalion reached Hansa Bay, pushing inland to the Sepik River. The abandonment of Japanese stores made it one of the largest arms dumps captured in the New Guinea campaign to that date.

The extensive number of marine and aircraft engagements in the area during World War II, resulted in many wrecks, which are still to be found. These include approximately 35 shipwrecks, which are popular with recreational divers. Wrecks in the area include a USN motor torpedo boat, the Sydney Maru- an Imperial Japanese Navy cargo ship, B-25D and B-24J-35 USAAF bombers and a P-39 Airacobra USAAF fighter.
