Goroka

Papua New Guinea

Personal note

Home of the Goroka festival.

In May Goroka hosts the PNG Coffee Festival. The renowned Goroka Show is held every year for three days on independence weekend (September 14, 15 and 16th). The Goroka Show is the oldest show in Papua New Guinea, over 50 years of "keeping the spirit alive".
