Papua New Guinea’s national parks

Gummi Fridriksson is passionate about all things PNG and enjoys sharing his vast knowledge, and local insights, through his blogs.

As a nation renowned for its pristine beauty and unique heritage, Papua New Guinea is also seeking to protect its future, preserving the environment and culture through a series of national parks and wildlife management areas.

From volcanic areas to coastal havens, the protected regions of PNG encompass some of the finest examples of the nation’s stunning landscape and cover about three per cent of the country.
