Biliau Island is a small island located in Madang Harbor near Madang, located
directly north of Madang Airfield (Madang Airport).
There are three large wrecked Japanese ships run aground on the island. Their bows are sticking
out of the water, and their sterns are submerged in shallow water.
A smaller landing barge is more to the west. It is possible these ships were sunk during an Allied air raid on May 8, 1943.
