I’d like to share some information about my recent trip to PNG.

General information:
I had a 1-way ticket from Brisbane to Port Moresby and Quantas which operates the AirNiugini flights made me buy a refundable return ticket (90A$ fee). The man in charge was a real pain. It’s probably advisable to fly from Cairns where they have Airniugini staff.
I traveld alone, I am a woman and it has been ok. Apart from places like Port Moresby I felt safe and people were extremely friendly and welcoming

West-Papua going around

Hi,
We are 2 Belgian girls traveling through West-Papua for 3 weeks in August. we are planning our trip and find it hard to get info. So a few basic questions:
- we are wondering if there is any public transport or the only way to get from one place to another is by plane?
- if by plane: is it necessary to book the tickets all in advance, or can we search there and buy tickets for a day or 2 later?
- do we need an organized tour for all visits? we are planning a trekking with guide through the…

A good book to learn about PNG rainforests and more:
Searching for Pekpek: cassowaries and conservation in the New Guinea rainforest

on Amazon or cassowaryconservation.com
both sites have reviews and info.
Not easy to purchase in PNG; take a copy and give to someone in PNG.

Hi, my mate and I are wanting to trek Kokoda in early 2017 but have nowhere near the budget to go with a fully organised group, however, we definitely need a guide and possibly a porter and are willing to pay a good rate for that service. Does anyone have any experience sorting out a guide separately from a tour group and/or any contacts that might be helpful in organising this? Cheers

Good day!
Could anyone tell me what the best way is to buy tickets for domestic flights inside PNG? Is it true that if you buy tickets through the Air Niugini website, you only pay when you actually use them? Are there other things to take into account? Does Air Niugini, and other airlines, allow for any flexibility? Are flights overbooked, or is it possible to buy them last minute as well?
Thanks for your input,
Boris

Alotau Tour Operators

My wife and I will be paying a fleeting visit to Milne Bay (one day in Alotau in a cruise ship) in June and are anxious to maximise the experience. Are there any individuals or companies offering tours in this area that you could recommend? If so I would greatly appreciate contact information

Our interest is largely in people, lifestyle and landscape rather that in recreational activities such as diving or swimming..
