THE COFFEE PRODUCTION CENTRE OF PAPUA NEW GUINEA
Goroka’s attractive, well-organised town is the provincial capital of the Eastern Highlands. It comes alive in September each year to host upwards of 40,000 painted warriors celebrating Papua New Guinea’s Independence Day. Anytime of year is a pleasure to visit. Discover the excellent displays of artefacts, pottery, weapons, war memorabilia and a collection of first contact photos from 1939 at the JK McCarthy Museum.
HOW TO GET THERE
Domestic flights arrive from Port Moresby directly into the Goroka airport in the centre of town. Third level airlines provide connections to Goroka from various other centres. Goroka is connected to Lae and Mt Hagen by the Okuk (Highlands) Highway.
