Jump to: Introduction Facts for the Traveler When to Go Events ... Maps
Papua New Guinea is a raw land, remarkably untamed and as variegated as swamp and jagged limestone; mud and moss forest; suffocating heat and Highland chill; plumed, pearl-shelled villagers and prosaic hill people; tiny tree kangaroos and enormous Queen Alexandra Birdwing butterflies. Today, the country attracts bad press, and although much of it is scare-mongering, it is wise to remember that PNG is subject to the same problems - urban unemployment, a rising crime rate and environmental exploitation - facing many emerging nations. Remember also that the tourist infrastructure of PNG is only in its infancy and that accommodation can be expensive, transportation limited and the food uninspiring. This is a destination for travellers who care more for the untramelled adventure than for home comforts.
Petty crime, banditry and isolated instances of violence remain the principal risks to travelling in Papua New Guinea, much of it concentrated in Port Moresby and some other urban centres in the Highlands province. Recent outbreaks of ethnic violence have occurred in the Takara settlement, just outside of Lae, and in the Port Moresby suburb of Gerehu. Isolated disturbances in the Southern Highlands make it a good idea to check consular advice before travelling in this area.

General Information

... Australia and South Pacific /Papua New Guinea PAPUA NEW GUINEA History and Government
History: New Guinea has been inhabited by various peoples from throughout Asia for some 10,000 years. Its recorded history began with the visits of Portuguese explorers in the early 16th century, followed by Dutch traders. The Dutch East India Company took control of the western half of the island, which became a colonial possession attached to the Dutch East Indies in 1828. The territory was then split between the British and Germans in the 1880s until after World War I, when it was transferred in its entirety to the control of Australia, endorsed by a United Nations mandate. Most of it was occupied by the Japanese during World War II. After 1945, New Guinea reverted to Australian administration before the granting of independence in 1975. Michael Somare, previously Chief Minister, assumed the post of Prime Minister. Somare remained in power until 1980, when Sir Julius Chan’s conservative People’s Progress Party (PPP) came out of opposition to form a government. Since then, Papua New Guinea’s domestic politics have been dominated by the struggle between Chan, Somare and the third major political figure of recent times, Mekere Morauta, leader of the People’s Democratic Movement (PDM), which was formed from dissidents of both PPP and the country’s third main political party

Papua New Guinea History and Culture
History It is believed that Papua New Guinea was originally inhabited by Asian settlers over 50,000 years ago. The first European contact was by the Portuguese explorer Jorge de Meneses in 1526-27 who named it Ilhas dos Papuas (Island of the Fuzzy Hairs). The Spaniard Inigo Ortiz de Retes later called it New Guinea because he thought the people similar to those of Guinea in Africa. Further exploration followed, including landings by Bougainville, Cook, Stanley and John Moresby.

About us
Send me a Brochure Tripbuilder (Shopping Cart) Send me a Quotation ... Pacific News member of Papua New Guinea (PNG) About the Country People Locals are predominantly Melanesian and Papuan with some Negrito, Micronesian and Polynesian. More than 800 indigenous languages are spoken throughout PNG. Melanesian Pigdin and Hiri Motu are the two most widely used, but English is the official language in education, business and government circles. History First settled more than 30,000 years ago, the first recorded sighting by Europeans was in 1512 by two Portuguese explorers. Dutch explorers followed and named it New Guinea because of similarities to Africa. Interaction between regions has been largely restricted due to the topography of the land and the diversity of languages. Apart from areas where traders and missionaries exerted their influence, many tiny, independent villages account for most of the traditions and cultural heritage which is preserved today. The country was divided between three nations, the Dutch, the Germans and the British towards the end of last century. In 1905, Australia took over the British sector naming it 'The Territory of Papua' and then captured the German sector during WW1.

The History of ABC Foreign Reporting
The ABC presence in PNG began in the 1940s - in the decades until 1973, the ABC established a national broadcasting and news network in PNG. Search this site:
Through Australian Eyes Exhibition Online
The ABC's first major involvement in Papua New Guinea was during World War II. ABC war correspondents were based in Port Moresby and covered fighting across the Pacific region. The ABC also provided programs to Radio 9PA, the station set up by the Army to broadcast to Allied forces in the New Guinea campaign. Australian Army Captain Robin Wood (left) officer-in-charge of 9PA, with US Army Captain Edgar L. Tidwell also attached to the station, in 1944. Robin Wood later became ABC Federal Director of Programme Services.
It would probably be safe to say that no station of its size ever had such tremendous resources upon which to draw for its programmes. The ABC, BBC, Australian Commercial Stations and the American Department of Information all made available transcriptions of their best programmes, and consequently the forces were extremely well supplied with entertainment.

Records and archives management - a Papua New Guinea report
John Evans
University of Papua New Guinea
Firstly, one of the many things I know little about is records and archives management. However, this is the first FID meeting in which Papua New Guinea will appear as a national member, represented by this new Centre at the University of Papua New Guinea. The Centre will take on and develop the functions of the Department of Library and Information Studies and the Journalism Section of the Department of Language and Literature at the university. It is important, at such a time, that the Centre does contribute to special interest groups and accept invitations for information made to it. This will begin the process of our involvement in FID activities as a national member. Papua New Guinea's earlier involvement with FID owes much to the interest of Dr Ian Dickson, President of FID/CAO. Margaret Obi, Acting Director of the Centre, was able to make a presentation on the situation in Papua New Guinea, to the FID/CAO meeting in Seoul in 1990.(1) FID/CAO/ET has also been of assistance in programme development in the information field at the University of Papua New Guinea.(2) Lastly, it is important to note the contribution of FID Vice-President, Dr Woody Horton, in encouraging us to apply for national membership.
