The main function of ASOPA (Australian School of Pacific Administration) was to train patrol officers and education officers to work in Australia’s territories. Most went on to work in the Territory of Papua and New Guinea, as it then was, while others were posted to the Northern Territory.

This website has been created to celebrate that era and to maintain contacts between the people who were there.

“Can anyone find a time in recorded history
where Heaven came as close to Earth?”
– Henry Bodman (ASOPA 1962/63)
