Papua New Guinea Celebrates

Papua New Guinea Celebrates

Thousands of years in the making, the culture of Papua New Guinea remains unique and untouched.   Traditions are passionately maintained through art, initiations and ‘Sing Sings’. The country is home to about 1,000 tribes who, between them, speak more than 800 distinct languages and support an incredibly rich and diverse culture.

During the summer, visitors are welcome to witness fascinating tribal traditions at the many festivals held throughout PNG, observing for themselves the exceptional ethnicity and eclectic explosions of colour and sound.

In July The National Mask Festival, Kokopo, East New Britain is one of the first events to launch the season.  In August Mount Hagen Cultural Show brings tribes together to celebrate and share their various activities.  The Crocodile is revered at its’ very own Festival and the most ‘vibrant show’ on earth takes place in Goroka in September.
