Kavieng, which rests on a sublime expansive harbour, is the capital of the Papua New Guinean province of New Ireland. The town of 20,000 is situated at Balgai Bay at the northern tip of the island. Kavieng is an administrative, trading and tourist centre. First chartered by the Dutch in 1616, it passed through German colonial control and then Australian administration from 1919. By the end of the 1942-1945 Japanese occupation the town was mostly destroyed. Today surf and reef tourism is blossoming. By the seaside is the fisheries wharf, and markets under the shade trees. From here visitors head for the many neighbouring islands.

The island is one of the country's most popular spots for scuba diving, surfing and game fishing. It also boasts three hotels, one of which has what may be the world's largest Tree House. Take a guided walk or a banana boat to visit the Blow Holes on Nusa Lavu Island, and while there take a Village Tour, as it is a great way to experience village life and culture, perhaps even enjoy a weaving demonstration. Avail yourself of a Town and Country half-day tour and really get to know this typical Somerset Maughan south sea island port.

In Kavieng, as a result of the Japanese occupation and subsequent Allied invasion, there are a number of relics from WWII, including plane and ship wrecks in the harbour and a Memorial Park. Walk along the gently-curving Harbour Drive, shaded by huge trees, and see many points of historical interest. You’ll find a large gun sitting above a bunker, that has several openings which allow entry, and the gun position provides an extensive view of the large, beautiful harbour. New Ireland is also home of some unique carvings from the island’s Malagan culture. These are world-famous wooden carvings held in museums: few carvers still practise.
