New Guinea Island Encounter

16 - 23 Sep 2017

Departing Cairns, Returning Cairns

A whole new world

Want to get off the beaten track? Take our most jam-packed Papua New Guinea holiday and sample all the highlights of this remote region in just 7 nights.

Witness the Alotau Festival and Sing Sing, a P&O-exclusive local display of canoes, warriors, powerful music and dance. As a matrilineal society, women make the rules in the Trobriand Islands. Try your hand at Trobriand cricket on Kiriwina Island – where the unconventional rules include an unlimited number of players, dancing and whistleblowing. On Kitava Island, unspoiled beaches and sparkling tropical waters teeming with fish and coral are ready for exploring. Visit new destination Conflict Islands - possibly the most peaceful place in the world.

"It's so easy to do so many things of an evening as they are all available and all in close vicinity. I can have dinner, drinks, see a show and go dancing all in one night!"
