Are you looking to see the most fantastical cultural event on the planet? If so then the Goroka Show is exactly what you are looking for.

Every year in September the town of Goroka bursts at the seams, as people flood in for the event. The show consists of multiple tribes and some dance groups that come together to have a Sing Sing (dance contest).

Not only is it a stunning sight to see, but you will have a chance to meet some of the friendliest people on earth.
