Current and up-coming


Papua New Guinea – Highlands & Islands  –  An illustrated talk by Michèle Adler & Rod McMillan

Tuesday 26 March, 7 for 7.30
Join us on a visual visit to the forests of the Highlands dripping with dendrobiums, living in a native coastal village near Wewak, learning to grow sago and betel nut, a volcanic climb in Rabaul, a long boat trip up the Sepik River and meet bougainvilleas in Bougainville. PNG is a melting pot of volcanoes, flora, relict animals and warring tribes. Fascinating culture and fabulous wild-life.
