Papua New Guinea Off The Beaten Path

  • Sail amongst islands time has forgotten

    Adventures in Paradise Yacht Charters sail out to remote islands in the Bismarck Archipelago from Kavieng. Visit villages or uninhabited islands, and discover this beautiful and untouched area of the world.

  • Watch out for small dinghys in rough...

    I had an experience of a small dinghy sinking about 2 kilometers off shore in pitch darkness with 26 people aboard and three kids. About 15 couldn't swim. Needless to say a harrowing and unforgettable experience and a very long swim, felt like Grant Hackett. Mind yourself in overcrowded dinghys, particularly if the sea is a bit rough, and don't...

  • Walk Across a Hemp-Suspension Bridge...

    I'm afraid of height so this was a bit of a challenge....imagine a rope and bamboo bridge with the width that equals the length of your foot; then imagine that there is a running river underneath you as you swing and totter along from one side to the other...Let the fun begin!(If you spend a day exploring the Highlands, you'll come across one or...

  • The ultimate Dunny

    at Wuvulu Island , 200 km north of Wewak ,if you need to use the toilet you have to walk the gangplank . What a view + any fish that the locals have eaten are recycled into fish food!

  • Underground Cooking

    The locals like to cook their food underground using hot rocks to heat the food - called a 'mumu'. In the photo, chicken, bananas and sweet potatoes are wrapped in banana leaves for the the cooking process. We were invited to attend this typical 'cook-up' by some of the local people that we had met.

  • SUP GUEST HOUSE, Mushu Island....

    The PERFECT BEACH GETAWAY.The guest house sleeps something like 18 people, but I have been there a good half-dozen times and never encountered another party staying there. It's rustic -- bush materials houses and furniture, kerosene lamps and stove, no shower -- but it definitely has its charms. The beds have foam mattresses on them and fresh...

    We stopped in Lae to visit a couple that was working with a local group, the Village Development Trust, to develop a small meeting centre in Lababia. It is a 2 hour boat ride from Lae. They also built small cabins, right on the beach. Built with local materials, employing local people in its care, service and upkeep, unique in design - and right on...

  • Mumeri Village, we came across...

    Mumeri Village, we came across many villages in the Sepik River region, to find them hospitable, helpful and a joy to to be with . I suggest you can get your tour operator or Hotel to organise a visit to these villages.

  • ANGORAM, on the SEPIK RIVER:...

    ANGORAM, on the SEPIK RIVER: Angoram is not so much a place to see, but a place to experience. It's a tiny dust-bowl of a town, but it's an important station town on the lower Sepik – a hub for getting up to the villages or getting from the village to Wewak town. It's about 4 hours by public transit from Wewak (under US$10), and the scenery and...

  • Absolutely the best place to...

    Absolutely the best place to stay in the Eastern Highlands is Ukarumpa S.I.L. center, near the city of Kainantu. It's a mission center and thus it is good to have the right attitude. The people are friendly and they have unbeliveable amount of tips and information about the country. They have a nice store with all the western goodies too. If you...

    Milne BayMilne Bay has 43 local languages. Of these, 33 are Austronesian languages, which dominate the islands and coast.

Trobriand islanders use abstract designs...
