Welcome to Stop 5, the final stop of this interactive walk.
You’ve found yourself just outside the former Australia School of Pacific Administration (or ASOPA for short).
ASOPA was established in the 1940s to play a role in supporting Papua New Guinea after the devastation of World War II.
Set amongst tropical gardens, the former ASOPA buildings now house a wide range of local businesses – successfully weaving these structures into the life of the city.
You’ve reached the end of this trial walk.
This area’s military history, which you’ve got a small insight into today, is just one of many stories to share.
We want to explore more – including First Nations experiences and continuing connections to the land, sky, and water. There’s also the area’s coastal bushland and the animals that call it home...
So, before you leave today, please complete the short survey you will find on the same webpage as this stop. Or scan the QR code on the sign to get to it.
Your feedback will help us broaden the stories we share and improve your experience of Middle Head / Gubbuh Gubbuh.
