    • Getting to Goroka for the Cultural Festival in September 2007 from Jayapura, Irian Jaya

      by Uncle_Al Online Now Oct 28, 2006 at 2:29 AM

      I am trying to arrange a trip to the Goroka highlands festival in September of next year. Any help would be much appreciated in figuring out the best (namely least expensive) way to get there from Jayapura in Irian Jaya, Indonesia.

      I believe there is a road from Jayapura across the border to Vanimo in PNG - is there any public transport that travels the route or how do people usually get there? And when I get there, is there a land route to Goroka or another budget alternative? If so, is it feasible to make the journey or am I on a wild goose chase...

      Your help is much appreciated...

      Size of Goroka festival?

      by jakartamoon Online Now Apr 16, 2004 at 7:13 AM

      I'm planning on attending either the Mount Hagen show or the Goroka Show in Papua and would like to know which show is the largest and also can you walk down among the dancers, etc during the show or are you confined to a fenced area? Anyone know of cheap budget accomodations at either place? Thank you for your time, jackie
