Geography & Location | Papua New Guinea Charters

Papua New Guinea is situated just north of Australia in the South Pacific. A Papua New Guinea charter itinerary offers opportunities to visit various islands, including the Solomon Islands and remote outlying retreats. While ashore, enjoy trekking through the jungle, trying the local cuisine, or exploring New Guinea’s fascinating history. Since the seas are warm, you must be sure to take advantage of all the fun water toys onboard your private yacht.

This country’s geography is diverse. In fact, in some places, it is incredibly rugged. A spine of mountains, the New Guinea Highlands, runs the length of the island of New Guinea, and this also forms a populous highlands region mostly covered with tropical rainforests.
