Papua New Guinea, in the south-western Pacific, encompasses the eastern half of New Guinea and its offshore islands. Lying just south of the equator, and one hundred and sixty kilometres north of Australia, Papua New Guinea (PNG) is part of a great arc of mountains stretching from Asia, through Indonesia and into the South Pacific. This fascinating land boasts more than six hundred islands, atolls and coral reef systems while inland these jungle-clad mountains rising four thousand metres above sea level, feeds some of the world’s longest river systems and delta plains. With the largest area of intact rainforest outside the Amazon, the stunning scenery and backdrop make this a truly unique fly fishing destination.

From the famous Papuan Black Bass, Barramundi and Saratoga in the freshwater rivers and lake systems to brilliant bluewater fly fishing opportunities including huge GTs, Dogtooth Tuna and Napoleon Wrasse, it is also a country of immense cultural and biological diversity. With over eight hundred indigenous languages, vast tracts of PNG are still wild and undeveloped and there are very few places left in the world like it.

Port Moresby is accessible from a range of destinations including Australia, Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong.
