SCENIC MOUNTAINS, AUTHENTIC CULTURE
Hela province is one of Papua New Guinea’s newest provinces, formed from three Southern Highlands districts in 2012. From the capital of Tari you’ll be delighted by our unspoilt environment and vibrant Hela customs. Home to the iconic Huli Wigmen, this is the place to learn about our striking body decoration and hear the melodies of our flute-like panpipes and bamboo Jew’s-harps.
HOW TO GET THERE
Domestic flights arrive directly into Tari from Port Moresby daily. The Highlands Highway connects Tari to Mt Hagen, Goroka and Lae.
