Cheap Flights to Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea overview

With superb dive sites, surfing reefs and game fishing, jaw-droppingly beautiful landscapes (fierce in parts), remote villages and genuinely friendly locals, it's surprising that more of us aren't searching for cheap flights to Papua New Guinea. 

Papua New Guinea is composed of its mainland and 600 islands (New Ireland, New Britain, Bougainville and Manus are among the biggest). There are 6.5 million people living in about 1,000 tribes speaking 800 languages; PNG is one of the most diverse countries. About 85 per cent of the population are subsistance farmers, living very traditionally, the remaining 15 live in the cities - Port Moresby (the capital), Lae, Mount Hagen, Madang, Wewak, Goroka and Rabaul.

There is one place in Papua New Guinea that has the greatest significance for Australians - the Kokoda Track. This 96km track through the Owen Stanley Ranges to Kokoda and beyond to the lowlands close to the Solomon Sea is the site of a series of battles between an ill-equipped Australian militia and the Imperial Japanese Army in 1942. Knowing that if Port Moresby fell, the Japanese Army would turn their attention to Darwin and Brisbane, the Australian soldiers dug in, securing victory for the Allies. Today, about 5,000 Australians walk the track through rain forest, crossing rivers, making steep ascends and descends. It's a physical and emotional challenge and, for those following in the footsteps of loved ones who fought in 1942, a spiritual journey.
