There are too many airports around Papua New Guinea to cover all of them. Below you will find information about Bulolo.
Bulolo is a town in the Morobe Province of Papua New Guinea. It was once an important gold dredging centre in the former Territory of New Guinea, situated on the Bulolo River, a tributary of the Markham River, about 32 km (20 mi) north-west of Wau. -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulolo
The Bulolo Airport was originally built in June 1930 and was 1,150 yards by 120 yards. Later it was expanded to 1,300 yards in length. The airstrip was bombed by Japanese Zeros in January 1942.
In February 2009 a new look strip was opened by MP Sam Basil. It now has a 1,500m runway. The upgrading work was jointly funded by Harmony Gold, PNG Forest Products and NKW Holdings at a cost of K500, 000 and took about six weeks from replacing the road-base with engineered fill and then resurfaced.
