The Madang Resort Hotel has a rich and colourful history.
It is the only hotel in PNG that dates back to early German
Colonisation of Papua New Guinea, when Madang was known as
Frederick Wilhelmshafen. It's name was changed to Madang by
the Germans after an island near Finschafen, that resembled
area experienced many influences, due to such things as the
take over by Australian's after World War I. Extensive fighting
took place by the Japanese, Australians and Americans during
World War II and the subsequent period between 1945-1975 during
which time the Australian Government administered the “Territory”
on behalf of the United Nations.
