Goroka, EHP

Goroka is situated in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea and has a wonderful climate. Warm days and cooler nights.

Goroka, a small outpost station in the 1950's has developed into an attractive, well organised town with modern facilities and relaxed atmosphere. It is a major Highlands commercial centre and is at an altitude of 1600 metres.

Today Goroka has become known for its annual show, held every August. It is a marvellous opportunity to gain an overview of PNG cultural diversity. The shows were first held in the 50's as a means of gathering together the different tribes and clans. At times there could be more than 40,000 painted warriors dancing to the beat of the Kundu drums.
