PNG Celebrates 45 Years of Independence
FORTY-FIVE YEARS AGO, on 16 September 1975, the nation of Papua New Guinea achieved its
independence from Australia and we, the members of the Papua New Guinea Association of Australia,
are proud of our past and continuing contributions to the Independent Nation of Papua New Guinea.
Featured here are some memories from the pre-Independence days in Papua and New Guinea.
