Welcome to Hiritano Highway


This area is home to the Mekeo people, who are noted for their colourful, dancing costumes and face-painting. On ceremonial occasions the men paint their faces in striking geometric designs.

If you fancy munching on a marsupial, watch for the Vanuamai people selling roasted wallaby (K10 for a set of ribs) along the roadside. They taste pretty good – the wallabies that is, not the Vanuamai people; no one has been eaten around here for decades.
