Governor General's Residence (MacArthur's HQ)
This prewar building is the house of the Commonwealth Governor General.  During WWII, it was used by General MacArthur as his residence in Port Moresby beginning in November 6, 1942, until he relocated his HQ to Hollandia. It was here on November 30th he told Eichelberger: "Bob…I want you to take Buna, or not come back alive."  Today, it is again the Governor General's Residence.
