Papua New Guinea is a region of the south-western Pacific Ocean, north of Australia. Its capital, Port Moresby, is located on the south-western coast. Papua New Guinea is geographically diverse and in places extremely rugged. During high tides parts of the island are inundated with water so lowland coffee growing is more rare. The Papua New Guinean highlands are thick with rainforest making it the perfect environment for a thriving coffee industry. The terrain has made it very difficult for roading and many areas are only accessible by foot or airplane. Coffee is now grown in fifteen of the nineteen provinces in Papua New Guinea.
The costal areas of Papua New Guinea are known for their beaches, coral reefs and scuba diving. While the inland areas are rich in dense rainforest, active volcanoes and stunning scenery – making it particularly inviting for tourists to visit and hike one of the many tracks, exploring the area’s natural beauty. Many areas of Papua New Guinea are yet to be explored as they are so remote and access to them is very limited.
