Welcome to The Papua Club

Our Rich History

The Papua Club was established in 1912 in what was then a remote part of the British Empire – the territory of Papua.

The Papua Club lives on today honouring many of the traditions and values that were formed by the founding members. This is reflected in the history that adorns the walls of the club, where the club pays tribute to the country, its members- past and present, and the many unsung heroes of conflicts both in the region and further afield.

The Papua Club is a comfortable and welcoming retreat from the bustle of PNG life, where members and their guests can enjoy lively conversation and comradery in a relaxing environment.


Membership operates on a 12-month subscription period commencing January 1 to December 31 each year, and membership is an annual commitment.

The classes of membership offered are as follows:

Town Member | Country Member | Honorary Member | Absentee Member | Temporary Member

Membership is open to applicants 18 years and over.

Applications for membership are reviewed by the Committee at a monthly meeting.
