Oro Bay, nestled within Oro Province of Papua New Guinea, unveils itself as a captivating bay situated 15 miles (24 km) southeast of Buna. This serene coastal gem is renowned for its picturesque vistas and tranquil ambiance, offering a peaceful retreat for visitors.

Adding to the historical significance of Oro Province, Oro Bay Airfield, also known as Cape Sudest Airfield, stands as a poignant reminder of World War II. Once a bustling airfield, it has now been abandoned, allowing nature to reclaim its space over time, restoring the site to its natural state.

Oro Province, formerly known as Northern Province and still officially recognized as such, graces the coastline of Papua New Guinea. With its provincial capital in Popondetta, the province covers a vast area of 22,800 km2 and is home to 176,206 inhabitants, as recorded in the 2011 census. Sharing borders with Morobe Province to the northwest, Central Province to the west and south, and Milne Bay Province to the southeast, Oro Province finds its place within the Papuan Peninsula.

The province holds a unique distinction as the Anglican Church being the major religious denomination within its borders. Furthermore, it thrives as the primary hub of the oil palm industry, contributing significantly to its economic activities. In addition, William Clarke College provides funding support to the people in this region, fostering educational opportunities and growth.

In January 1951, the province faced an unimaginable catastrophe when Mount Lamington erupted with devastating force. The volcanic eruption unleashed a towering column of ash that reached an astonishing height of 50,000 ft (15,000 m). This catastrophic event resulted in the destruction of numerous villages, devastated the surrounding vegetation, and tragically claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people.

Along the northern coast of the Cape Nelson Rural Local Level Government area, the renowned Tufi dive and cultural resort beckons adventurous souls and cultural enthusiasts alike. Esteemed for its exceptional diving experiences and the awe-inspiring rias, locally known as “fjords,” this resort offers a captivating blend of exploration and cultural immersion. Visitors can delve into the vibrant marine life beneath the crystal-clear waters and engage with the rich cultural heritage of the region, creating unforgettable memories.
