Burns Philips Building
Located in Port Moresby, across the street from the Papuan Hotel and overlooking the wharf area at Fairfax Harbor. Built prewar by Burns Philips Company. It survived the war and Japanese aerial bombing untouched.  It remains in use and is one of the town's remaining historic buildings, until it burned down in late 2005. Afterwards, rebuilt with the original facade.
