2012 Goroka Show Weekender Package.

The 2012 Goroka Show Weekender package includes 4 nights in Goroka for the 2012 Goroka Show. It is a marvelous opportunity to gain an insight of PNG cultural diversity. The Goroka shows were first held in the 50's as a means of gathering together the different tribes and clans. At times there could be more than 40,000 painted warriors dancing to the beat of the Kundu drums. The scenario was an amazing success and grew from its original concept of a local get- together into a major tourist attraction.

Asaro Mud-boys- Goroka, EHP
Tribal folklore records that centuries ago the warriors of Asaro were defeated in a tribal fight "payback"raid, and, to make themselves look fierce in the process, covered their bodies with gray mud. According to legend, the ruse worked. Their enemies fled at the sight of these ghostly apparitions. The mud men and will recreated the drama for you when you attend the 2012 Goroka Show.
