Papua New Guinea Celebrates
Papua New Guinea’s culture, thousands of years in the making, is unique and untouched. In the remote villages visitors will discover tribes who passionately maintain traditions through art, initiations and Sing Sings. A sing sing with customary dance, music and traditional costume provides the opportunity for visitors to experience in an explosion of colours and sounds.
From July to November, travellers can see for themselves the many different aspects of this exceptional ethnicity at the various festivals.
The National Mask Festival, Kokopo, East New Britain, in July launches the festival season. Mount Hagen Cultural show, August, brings tribes together to celebrate their diverse cultures. The Crocodile is revered at its’ very own Festival in August and the most ‘colourful show’ on earth, now in it’s 62nd year, takes place in Goroka in September. In November The Kenu & Kendu Festival shows off the stunning Canoes in the azure waters of Milne Bay.
