Sangara is located along the road from Popondetta to Kokoda.
To the south is Isivita.
An Anglican mission was established at Sangara. In 1938, Reverend Henry Holland worked at Sangara until he moved to Isivita.
Replaced by Reverend Vivian Redlich.
Occupied by the Japanese during late July 1942 until roughly November 1942.
After the war, many retired Australian Army veterans and members of the Papuan Infantry Battalion (PIB) were granted land in this area and settled here.
Located on the southern side of the main road, this school had a P-40 Warhawk wing displayed as the school sign until the late 1970s. Today, an A-20 Havoc wing is displayed outside the school. Both wings were recovered from the Dobodura Airfield area.
