Lukim PNG 2005 - A Major Success

Despite the crowd figures being slightly down from last year, the 2005 Lukim PNG Nau (See Papua New Guinea Now) Tourism Exposition was as major success for the organisers, exhibitors, buyers and the visiting public. More than 2500 visitors came to the expo over the three days to see what PNG can offer in terms of its unique and niche tourism products such as diving, fishing, trekking, rafting, colour or just view the products and services that are available in the tourism industry. For the first time, Lukim PNG attracted international buyers from Australia, Germany, United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Baltic and the United States and they were impressed with what the 36 exhibitors put on show. Milne Bay Tourism won the best display booth award.

Watut River Tragedy

The wild and rugged Watut River in Morobe Province claimed the lives of three Israelis in late May. Yisrael Yeruham of Gadera, Shlomo Haruvi (62 years) of Haifa and Itamar Haikin (52 yrs) of Tel Aviv were all part of the Neharot Expeditions - a private world white water rafting expedition based out of Israel. The three died as a result of an unfortunate accident, when their boat dropped into a canyon and flipped over causing them to drown in the fast flowing river. Neharot Expeditions said despite their many years of rafting experience and strict safety precautions, the confrontation with the elements led to tragic results. PNG Minister for Culture & Tourism Hon. David Basua expressed sympathy at the loss and sent condolences to family and friends of the deceased. The bodies left PNG soil on May 23 on their way back home to Israel for burial via Australia. However, despite the tragedy, several surviving members of the expedition vowed to return to PNG as they had been captivated by the beauty of our people, culture and environment. The PNG Tourism Promotion Authority also acknowledges the loss of lives and convey our sincere condolences to family and friends.

North Star begins PNG Cruises in November

Australia's North Star Cruises (NSC) will start operating its "Papua New Guinea - New Adventures in Paradise' starting November 9. These will include back-to-back cruises between Alotau to Rabaul. NSC director and partner Craig Howson was in PNG mid-June accompanied by ship master Brad Benbow and business friend Rob Malcolm. They were accompanied to Tufi and the magical islands of Milne Bay by PNG Tourism Promotion Authority marketing & promotions manager Jim Yomapisi to confirm logistics and other ground work and were impressed with what they saw. The team also visited Rabaul and its outer islands and Goroka. North Star promises its clients that the adventure will be one never to be forgotten. For more info visit: www.northstarcruises.com.au
