THE GOROKA SHOW

The Goroka Show is a combination of an agricultural show, and 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.

We have packages from short weekender to longer, high-end tours. Each of the tours below can be viewed, downloaded and printed for your records. When considering our tours, please be aware that this is the peak period for accommodation in Goroka, so the better properties will sell out very quickly.
