Papua New Guinea is quickly becoming the “must visit” destination for all true travellers. Australia’s closest neighbour is opening its arms to tourists from across the world who crave authentic travelling experiences


An independent nation of over 8 million people, Papua New Guinea is located just 150km to the north of Cape York and shares a border with Indonesia. 



One of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, Papua New Guinea is home to more than 800 different languages and a myriad of colourful tribal and national festivals that span the country’s annual events calendar.


From trekking the highest mountain in Oceania (Mount Wilhelm, 4,509m), to diving some of the world’s most pristine coral reefs, island-hopping across 600+ mostly desertedislands and discovering fiery active volcanoes, Papua New Guinea is an adventure traveller’s paradise.


The country is also popular with war history buffs due to the prominent role it played in WWII, with the world-renowned Kokoda Track trekked by over 4,000 Aussies and Kiwis each year.


With regular direct flights from Sydney (4 hours), Brisbane (3 hours) and Cairns (1.5 hours), as well as being a popular cruising destination, Papua New Guinea is the close-to-home, off-the-beaten-track, must-visit destination.
