Port Moresby is the capital and largest city of Papua New Guinea. It is located on the shores of the Gulf of Papua, on the south eastern coast of the Papuan Peninsula of the island of New Guinea. The city emerged as a trade centre in the second half of the 19th century. During World War II it was a prime objective for conquest by the Imperial Japanese forces, to be used as a staging point and air base to cut off Australia from South-east Asia and the Americas. Port Moresby has a population of over 400,000, giving it an annual growth rate of about 2.1%. The first European to see it was Captain John Moresby in 1873. It was named in honour of his father, Admiral Sir Fairfax Moresby.
