WHERE TO GO IN NEW ZEALAND AND THE PACIFIC
Papua New Guinea
Home to hundreds of tribes and languages, PNG is a culturally fascinating place. Much of the population lives in rural areas and one of the best ways to see local life is to lace up your hiking boots and hit the Kokoda Track.
This demanding trek follows the trail built by Australian soldiers during WWII and passes through lush jungle and remote villages. It's tough on the legs and the humidity is always a challenge but there's no better way than to get out and experience this mysterious country for yourself.
Nobody quite knows how long the Solomon Islands have been inhabited for but what we do know is that visiting the islands remains a thrilling adventure.
Centuries old traditions remain strong in these parts while the more recent history of World War II also looms large across the archipelago. But it's not just about history; snorkelling is a huge draw and there are many opportunities to explore the marine world.
