Highlights of Papua New Guinea

Port Moresby

Scroll

The capital of Papua New Guinea, Port Moresby, is a sprawling coastal city overlooking a beautiful natural harbour. It contains the parliament, built in the style of a haus tambaran (Sepik worship house), and an interesting national museum. On the outskirts of town lies the Pacific Adventist University estate providing exceptional birding with species such as bowerbird and frogmouth. An on-site guide is available and small fee payable. For anyone interested in birds with a few hours to kill in the Port Moresby area, this location is a must. Another option is to visit the Adventure Park with various species of birds of paradise on display and botanical gardens with beautiful displays of New Guinea’s native flora. While it is normally perfectly safe if accompanied by one of our guides, it is strongly advised not to wander around town alone, especially at night.
