King Cameron’s grave and lookout  

King Cameron’s grave and lookout
Head up the trail past the skull cave to reach this concrete grave adorned with flowers. Although it might not look like much, it’s worth coming just for the charming story.

King Cameron—originally Cyril Cameron from Tasmania—arrived in Papua New Guinea in the early 1900s and tried his hand at goldmining on the mainland before setting up a coconut plantation on Kitava. According to legend, he fell in love with the island and never left, taking several local wives and having many children and grandchildren (some of his descendants can be found on the island today). He was so admired and respected by the locals (a feeling that was reciprocated) that he became known as King Cameron.
