CULTURE

Goroka Show 2018

For 2018, we have a few tour options to choose from.

4 nights

This four night program has a twist on our normal Goroka Show weekender tours with Mount Hagen and a road trip included. It is designed for independent travellers requiring managed arrangements for visiting the Goroka Show. There is a selection of accommodation options – subject to availability at time of booking – and escorted excursions to the Goroka Show and other attractions. For the excursions you will share a bus, guide and show seating with other clients booking this package.

7 nights 

Our 7 night program commences and ends on a Monday. This tour offers visits to villages where you can get up close and personal with the famous mudmen and skeleton dancers and getting involved in the local customs and way of life.

The Goroka Show is partly an agricultural show and partly a highlands sing-sing. Since colonial days the people of the eastern highlands have come together once a year to display samples of their best crops and livestock to compete for prizes, and to show off their most colourful and energetic dance traditions. The pride of each tribe is vested in its dancing groups which vie for attention and prominence on the dance ground – often there are several groups performing at once in different parts of the arena. Sparks fly occasionally on the field as jealousy and competition fuel conflict between tribal groups. At the end of the Show, judges award prizes to the best dancing groups: cash awards have now taken the place of pigs and brides.
