Central Province envelops our National Capital District making its many attractions and adventures the most accessible in the country. Hear the Birds-of-Paradise chatter in the Varirata National Park canopies, witness the sprawling plains rise into mountain ridges and plateaus, float in crystal-clear rivers off the beaten track, and explore the many beaches and islands with a local guide.

  • kite and surf the waves off the beaches at Hula village

HOW TO GET THERE

International flights arrive directly into the Port Moresby International Airport from a number of transit hubs in the Asia-Pacific region. From the airport, three main highways will take you out of the National Capital District and into Central Province: travel west on the Hiritano Highway, east on the Magi Highway and north on Sogeri Road.
