Visit PNG, Experience the difference

When a pastime becomes a pursuit, when the time, the money and the opportunity present themselves to indulge in such pleasures, Papua New Guinea can offer a diversity of culture and physical activities unattainable and unequalled anywhere else in the world.

Its' mountains, valleys, rivers and islands, untouched by commercial development, provide unlimited adventure and excitement for the special interest visitor.

Diving enthusiasts around the world keep coming back for what they describe as the ultimate diving experience. Fishermen, always looking for a bigger challenge, are never disappointed. Reef waters, rivers and estuaries abound with prize catches of tuna, marlin, mackerel, black bass and barramundi.

PNG is a bush walker's bliss. there are hundreds of tracks traversing the country, the most famous being the Kokoda Trail, the scene of the bloodiest confrontations of the Pacific campaign of World War II. climb the highest mountain, kayak in Madang, cycle in New Ireland, explore caves in Kundiawa.

If you are batty about birds, PNG is the place to be. Over 700 species of feathered fliers flutter across our island including 38 of the 43 known species of the exotic Bird of Paradise. There are numerous other birds of distinction including the cassowary pigeon that is the size of a turkey. Parrots of kaleidoscopic colours dot our towering trees.

Not all the colours of the rainbow have been reserved for the birds as there is an unlimited range of hues and shades to be seenin our 2000 orchid species and countless magnificent buttterflies including the world's largest, the queen Alexandra's Birdwing.

There are treasures of unusual artefacts, museums, galleries and war cemeteries for the historian and collector.
