Extraordinary and diverse customs and traditions
Papua New Guinea

Ignite your senses simply through exposure to our diverse and continuous culture on your visit to Papua New Guinea.

In Papua New Guinea you’ll come face to face with some of the oldest continuing culture on the planet. You’ll mainly meet Melanesian people though some areas are also home to descendants of Polynesian and Micronesian settlers from across the Pacific islands.

From our remote villages to our urban centres, you’ll find that our customs are passionately maintained in elaborate rituals that accompany deaths, feasts, marriages, compensation ceremonies and initiation rites.
