Regional Info:
Port Moresby is the largest and capital city in Papua New Guinea and on the shores of the Gulf of Papua. It's a diverse and interesting country with 4 main regions - Port Moresby being located in the Southern Region, closest to Australia. Port Moresby is just a 1 1/2 hour flight from Cairns, Australia and 4 hours from Sydney. There is plenty to do in PNG such as scuba diving, fishing, 4 wheel driving, surfing, cultural experiences and plenty of opportunity for exploring. There are around 9 million people in PNG and over 851 languages and over 1000 cultural groups, though most people speak English so it's easy to integrate and there is a large expat population. Most expats live in safe and modern compounds. PNG is well-known for high levels of crime, although advice from people who live there is to not just listen to mainstream media but to talk to people who have actually lived in PNG.
