Where Birds and Animal Life Outnumber People

Western Province


Our Western Province is unlike anywhere else in Papua New Guinea. This is the perfect destination for anglers, photographers and lovers of flora and fauna.

Explore our wide-open grasslands home to Rusa deer, wallabies and wild pigs. Spot crocodiles and lizards lingering patiently near riverbanks, and the flocks of wildfowl and ducks that seem to be flying across rivers on loop. This is where you’ll see two of the greatest rivers in the country, the Fly and the Strickland, run for almost their entire length through a single province.

The main town of Western Province on the small island of Daru, just off the coast is really the Wild Wild West. Once a busy pearl and beche-de-mer trading port, Daru is now the centre of a growing fishing industry. You’ll see crocodile skins from the province packed up and exported from here.



Domestic flights arrive directly into Daru from Port Moresby. You can access other parts of Western Province with third level airlines and charter planes.
