Wishing to return to PNG where I grew up in the late 60's. I grew up in Kavieng New Ireland. Am looking for the best time of year to travel via Australia (as far as weather and cheapest rates) and also the best way to fly out of LA. I assume I will be stopping along the way at New Zealand or even Figi. I want to do the Gt Barrier Reef also. It may be best to fly 2 different routes so we can catch different places along the way. Can anyone help?
Hopeful to go this Dec 2010 or next early summer 2011
