Lighthouses of Papua New Guinea

Assembled from several former British colonies, Papua New Guinea includes the eastern half of the island of New Guinea, the island of New Britain, the Bismarck Archipelago, and the island of Bougainville in the Solomon Islands. The southeastern quarter of New Guinea was colonized by Britain in 1885, and the northeastern quarter of the island was colonized by Germany in the same year. Australian troops captured the German territories during World War I. The various territories were first combined under Australian administration after World War II. The country became independent in 1975.

Aids to navigation in Papua New Guinea are maintained by the National Maritime Safety Authority (NMSA). The authority has a light list and a map showing the location of the major lights in the country (.pdf files).

ARLHS numbers are from the ARLHS World List of Lights. PNG numbers are from the NMSA light list. Admiralty numbers are from volume K of the Admiralty List of Lights & Fog Signals. U.S. NGA List numbers are from Publication 111 for Bougainville and the Bismarck Archipelago and from Publication 112 for New Guinea.
