Points of Interest in Goroka

  • J.K. McCarthy Museum. Set up by and named after a long-time Australian patrol officer in PNG, the museum has seen better days but, nevertheless, is well worth a visit. There are several large rooms that include WW2 relics and many traditional artifacts from PNG. The most interesting section is arguably the collection of photos taken in the 1930s by the first Australians to enter the Highlands. K5.
  • The Goroka Show. This is the major cultural event of the PNG Highlands and takes place in mid-September when the country celebrates its Independence. The show brings together people from over one hundred tribes in traditional costumes who gather for music, dancing and displays of tribal rituals.
