Having multiple shopping centres within 5 minutes drive regardless of your location, along with various Public and Private schools, Boroko offers the ideal location for families. Boroko is also inclusive of the main sporting fields for rugby, soccer and cricket with the Bisini Parade sporting facilities and the National Football Stadium which regularly hosts international rugby league matches including the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
With a past as memorable as the red, white and black colors of the Papua New Guinea's flag, Boroko was once the epicenter of Port Moresby’s city life between the ‘80s and ‘90s. The suburb, though it has lost most of its appeal to Waigani’s Vision City Mega Mall, it has come a long way to maintaining its dignity as a livable suburb to date.
