Location
Buna Village (Old Village) is located a mile to the west of the Buna Government Station, along a cove on the north coast of New Guinea.

Today
A small museum set up in the village displaying relics collected in the area. Displays include the wing of an aircraft (likely from one of the Betty wrecks) and a variety of smaller Army relics, including shells, mortar holders, bullets and so forth. In 2005, villagers want 5 Kina per photo and a 20 Kina entry fee, which is exorbitant.
