Rabaul Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 135 photos

Rabaul was such an interesting place to visit. It had signs of a paradise once but now long gone it was more like what should have been a ghost town, yet people still struggled to survive. Well worth the visit for the WW2 history, the diving and to see how a forgotten place still struggles on with life.

    You were wise not to stay at the travel lodge, it is not safe for you or your belongings..I wish the whole word could know just how questionable this operator is.

    It was great to see your photos of Rabaul as it appears now. At the same time, I was saddened to see the volcanic ash spread everywhere - it was such a lush tropical place when I visited for work between 1979-82. Excellent pics of your hitch-hiking trip!
