Welcome to D'Entrecasteaux Islands
Scattered across a narrow strait from the PNG mainland, the D’Entrecasteaux group was named by French explorer Antoine d’Entrecasteaux, who sailed through in 1793 while searching for his missing compatriot, La Pérouse. The three principal islands, from northwest to southeast, are Goodenough (Nidula), Fergusson (Moratau) and Normanby (Duau). The islands are extremely mountainous, covered by dense jungle and contain a number of active geothermal fields. Sanaroa and Dobu are the most significant of the smaller islands and there are numerous reefs, shoals and atolls.
