2. Mount Tavurvur

Mount Tavurvur is an active volcano near Rabaul, on the island of New Britain.

One of the most dangerous volcanoes, it erupted most recently in 2014 and most tours will take you only to the base. Even looking up at this volcano is a great Papua New Guinea Instagram shot.

3. Dobu Island

This small island is part of the D’Entrecasteaux Islands, where the Dobu people live in dense jungle and fishing villages. Notoriously difficult to visit, adventurous travellers can rent a dinghy and stay in local houses.

4. Kokoda Track

We’re not going to lie – this trail is tough. One of the world’s most spectacular and challenging treks, the Kokoda track is 96 km long and takes four-12 days to complete.

You’ll be rewarded with beautiful mountain views.

5. Kimbe Bay

Love scuba diving? You’ll love Kimbe Bay, a tropical coral hotspot.  You can dive in pristine coral reefs, mangroves, seagrasses and deep ocean waters.

6. Lake Kutubu

Lake Kutubu is a lake in the Southern Highlands, remote and breathtaking.  Local legend says that a woman cut down a Fig tree while looking for water, the tree then turned everything it touched to liquid, and so, the lake was formed.

You can stay at Tubo Lodge, who will organise trips to local villages for cultural visits and trekking trips to nearby waterfalls.

7. Doini Island

Doini Island is located in the heart of Milne Bay, on the eastern tip of Papua New Guinea, just one hour 15 minutes flight north of Cairns.

The private island has just a handful of locals, a small resort and an airstrip, so is pretty deserving of ‘deserted island’ status.
