West and East New Britain – Papua New Guinea

West and East New Britain – Papua New Guinea

Discovered by an Englishman, William Dampier and named accordingly, the beautiful island of New Britain is still virtually untouched, a pre-requisites for today’s adventure traveller.

Walindi Plantation Resort would be a stunning introduction to West New Britain.   Located on the shores of Kimbe Bay, the resort is paradise for divers, who can explore volcanic caves draped in staghorn coral and startling reef drop-offs.   The fishing and snorkelling are also exceptional in this area, meaning non-divers can enjoy the superb natural surroundings.

Head East to Rabaul and the visitor will find a treasure trove of WW2 relics, tunnels and caverns to explore.  In addition this part of PNG has a rich culture and unique traditions.  The evergreen rainforest vegetation, rugged mountain ranges and imposing volcanoes make an attractive and exciting place to visit.  Whilst there the Duke of York Islands are simply beautiful, undeveloped and easily accessible.
