Welcome to Central, Oro & Milne Bay Provinces

North across the Solomon Sea, the Trobriand Islands are a world apart, where yams rule supreme, 'free love' is occasionally practised, magicians bring rain, and cricket is played aggressively.

Head south and the land dissolves into thousands of islands, islets and atolls, where the truly adventurous can spend weeks island-hopping. This watery world celebrates its seafaring heritage during the Milne Bay Canoe & Kundu Festival, during which island warriors race their splendidly decorated ocean-going canoes.
