Welcome to Milne Bay Province

More than 435 islands give the province 2120km of coastline, connected by a myriad banana boats for want of better infrastructure. To many Australians, Milne Bay is synonymous with the 1942 WWII battles fought here between Japanese and Australian forces and a few war relics are still scattered about.

The far-flung Trobriand Islands are proving to be culturally resilient and as exotic a destination as the father of modern anthropology, Bronsilaw Malinowski, first described them to be.
