Discover Papua New Guinea
There are few places in the world that are so unchartered that they offer something new to even the most seasoned travellers. Papua New Guinea is one such place.
From white sandy beaches along the coastline of Huon Peninsula, to low-lying savannahs that stretch and rise to meet tropical rainforests that lie tangled across rugged mountains, Papua New Guinea offers adventure to even the most intrepid explorers.
If you’re looking for butterflies, wild orchids, colourful and raucous birds, superb diving, as well as lush plant and animal life, Papua New Guinea is your country of choice.
Its rich diversity is a well-kept secret. The abundant fauna and flora make the country an excellent destination for eco-tourism, while the many tribes scattered in villages and hamlets across the nation offer a fascinating cultural experience. Over 800 languages are spoken countrywide, with more than a hundred in Morobe Province alone. But rest assured, English is widely spoken and is used as the main business language, so you will be able to make the most of your travels.
