PAPUA NEW GUINEA’S VARIETY OF HABITATS AND CLIMATES COUPLED WITH A LACK OF PREDATORY ANIMALS FAVOUR OUR THRIVING BIRD POPULATION.

Touted widely as a birdwatcher’s paradise, you’ll get up close with our famous endemic species such as the Raggiana and blue bird-of-paradise and rare finds including the fire-maned bowerbird.

From tiny whistlers to giant flightless omnivores, and even the world’s only poisonous bird species, our birdwatching options are as diverse as our culture. Whether you’re sticking to the coast or exploring the rugged peaks of our highlands, you’ll be excited by our birding prospects. Even city slickers will find rich bird diversity near our urban districts; some 400 species dwell within driving range of Port Moresby.
