Pacific We Are: One Step, One Aspiration 


A warm Papua New Guinea Welcome to our island brothers and sisters from across the beautiful Pacific!  

Join us in PNG - the land of 'A Million Different Journeys' as we welcome 12 outstanding Pacific Island pageant queens to our capital city Port Moresby for the annual Miss Pacific Islands Pageant

Follow the week-long journey of our island queens - from Monday 25th November to December 1st, as they share their humble aspirations promoting the many cultures and shared values of our Pacific Islands Region

The pageant program includes excursions to the surrounding attractions in Port Moresby, including Loloata Island. There will be a Float Parade in the Down Town CBD area, then finally a Crowning Ball where contestants bring their best to the stage to determine who will be crowned the new 2019 Miss Pacific Islands.
