Rabaul was reduced in size after the last major eruption - most of the town and the airport were moved out of the old caldera.
This place may be one of the last frontiers (as advertised) but the people are friendly, the weather is great, and the place is like a huge garden.
Roads get washed out, and 'snowbanks' of ash get put to the side - in some places the grass is just growing back.
