Papua New Guinea Holiday Packages

Powdery beaches, colourful coral reefs, and peaked volcanoes: Papua New Guinea is the stuff of daydreams when you’re sitting at the office. Avid adventurers will love exploring this island nation, one of the world's most culturally and ecologically diverse. Your experience doesn’t have to come in a neat tourist box, and it shouldn’t. Take a trip to an uncontrived, compelling destination—your Papua New Guinea holiday is sure to be a memorable experience.

Things to Do in Papua New Guinea

With a melting pot of cultures, Papua New Guinea holidays are brimming with new experiences and eye-opening encounters. Thanks to the island's eco-diversity, it’s “parrot-dise” for birdwatchers, and scuba divers will descend to some of the most dramatic depths in the world. Plus, trekking through the country's changing landscapes is the perfect way to get “in-tents” with a camping adventure.

For a “peak” into the island's history, take a journey along the Kokoda Track. Beginning at Port Moresby and climbing into the Owen Stanley Range, this five-day hike will take you along a trail used by gold miners in the 1890s and then by the Japanese during World War II. For easier ups and downs, Mount Wilhelm is a simple climb with views of the coastline. Find a local guide to lead the way, which will take three or four days.

Aquatic adventurers will delight in Papua New Guinea's islands and coastal towns. Bougainville offers world-class waters for snorkelling, with clear visibility of colourful fish and World War II wrecks just below the surface. New Britain has excellent swimming, day hikes and thermal hot springs. Add one of Wotif’s car hire options in Port Moresby to Papua New Guinea holiday packages to get a taste of the nearby interior and a few hours of adventure along the coast.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

If you want to bring home some traditional crafts, stop in at any of the local shops or buy directly from the villagers. The bustling markets in Port Moresby are also worth a visit. At Ela Beach Craft Market, you can watch the traditional dances every morning (and see how your own moves hold up), then browse the handcrafted goods laid out on colourful blankets.

The markets are also an opportunity to sample Papua New Guinea's traditional foods. You’ll go “coco-nuts” for the mostly vegetarian cuisine, which features sweet potatoes, taro root and sago, a palm-tree starch. Fruit is also a staple, and juicy tropical options abound. Hotels will offer Western and Asian cuisine, with traditional foods becoming more predominant as you venture farther into the interior.

The hotels and resorts are also a source of nightlife for travellers, frequently organising dancing or live entertainment in the evenings. For a great night out, go tribal at a sing-sing, which is a small event featuring cultural performances.
