The New Guinea Club is a great glimpse into Rabaul's rich and colourful past. From its agricultural origins as the "Planters' Club", through its wartime occupation by the Japanese to the more recent ravaging by nature in 1994, no trip to East New Britain and the Gazelle Peninsula is complete without a visit to the real capital of Rabaul town and the New Guinea Club.

The New Guinea Club originated out of WW1 as the Sergeant's Mess of the Australian Army (most famous Member being Errol Flynn) & the only building left standing after WW2. You can still see the bomb holes! It was re-built it to its former glory as a Officer's/Gentlemen's Club but was again destroyed by fire & then the twin volcanic eruptions of 1994. A handful of remaining members in their attempt to keep Rabaul's history alive, rebuilt a section of the skeleton & turned it into a Museum. Well worth a visit & the small donations collected go toward the upkeep.
