Gusap Area
Gusap Airport is a general aviation airport in Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea located at the base of the Finisterre Range. It has no scheduled commercial airline service. It was built by US Army during World War II. Next to the airport runs the Ramu Highway, main road linking the provinces of Madang and Sandaun. It starts in Madang and it ends in Bak. From the Ramu Highway start several secondary roads to the mines of Gusap Area.

If you like adventure, PNG is certainly a place for you. Around 3/4 of the territory is covered by tropical forest and despite it's close to the equator, the highest peaks are interested by snowfalls (highest peak is 4,509 m). Only 18% of population lives in urban areas and there are over 1,000 of groups and tribes with over 820 spoken languages (first country in the world). in PNG there are a lot of national parks, a real wealth for visitors coming for to see the nature. Most important are:

Port Moresby
_Varirata National Park
Located in the Central region, Varirata is a haven for native flora and fauna. The park is just 42km from Port Moresby and protects the western end of the Sogeri Plateau, across to the Astrolabe mountains. There is a network of trails, grassy picnic areas and shelters with barbecues, and lookouts giving fine views across to Port Moresby and out to sea. You can camp in the park or stay in the small park lodge.
_Moitaka Wildlife Sanctuary
Crocodile feeding takes place on Friday afternoons from 2–4pm when the sanctuary opens to the public. There are some huge crocs and it’s an act worth seeing. Other animals and birds include a precocious raggiana bird of paradise. Located a few kilometres out of town on the Sir Hubert Murray Highway

Morobe
_McAdam National Park
This park stretches between Wau and Bulolo, protecting wildlife such as echidnas, cuscuses, cassowaries and birds of paradise. It also preserves the last virgin stands of Klinkii and hoop pine.
_Labu Tali Conservation Area (Salamaua District)
Eco tours visit the giant leatherback turtles that come to lay eggs between late November and early February. Boats leave from Voco Point in Lae.
_Kamiali Wildlife Management Area (Salamaua District)
Local villages run eco tours to see the nesting turtles in this conservation area. Boats leave from Voco Point.

Western Highlands
_Baiyer River Sanctuary
North of Mount Hagen, the park is known for its colourful birds of paradise, and has some pleasant shorter bushwalks.

Eastern Highlands
_Mt Gahavisuka Park
Set high on a mountainside 11km from the provincial capital of Goroka, this park has beautiful scenery, great views, picnic shelters and clearly marked walking tracks. There is a botanical sanctuary with rhododendrons and native plants from all over the country, two orchid houses and an information centre.

Southern Highlands
_Lake Kutubu National Park
This tranquil lake provides a refuge for birdlife, butterflies, reptiles and turtles. Birds of paradise are plentiful around this beautiful area and you can swim, visit villages or just enjoy the scenery.
_Wasi Falls Wildlife Management Area
A pristine stretch of rainforest rich in birds and wildlife. There are several waterfalls including the dramatic Wasi Falls (the country’s largest), which plunge 100m into a basin, as well as ancient burial caves. Tubo Lodge can organise birdwatching and wildlife tours.

West New Britain
_Pokili Wildlife Management Area
This thermally active area is unique for its hot springs, geysers and boiling mud pools. Scrub fowls also use the warm earth to hatch their eggs.

PNG, outside Port Moresby looks like a very wild and unhabitated territory, like the Amazon forest or most of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
It's very surprising that there is no a continuous road network and vehicles cannot travel between different towns. Are threre plans to fill those gaps?

As you said, outside Port Moresby is wild and unhabitated territory, so I think as long as they don't find mines or other resources to exploit, difficult they will build new roads since the existings need already a lot of manutenction. At the moment, the plane remains the main way of transport in PNG for long distances
