Cheapest routing will be via Brisbane.

Go to www.apng.com for cheapest flights from Brisbane to Port Moresby including 32kg baggage allowance in coach.

Penis gourds are now only worn in PNG in the most remote areas of Western Province and West Sepik Province and even then the local penis gourd wearers only usually "dress down" for visitors who come to see the traditional way of wearing the penis cover (beware - it doesn't cover the testicles as well - just in case you are squeamish).

It's bloody cold in them thar Star Mountains - these days who wants to walk around with a cap on your penis when you could be wearing a fur jacket and dungarees instead?

These places are expensive to get to via Kiunga, Tabubil or Telefomin and thereafter 2 days hking into remote territory before you will come across anybody wearing a penis gourd or willing to whip one on for you to see.

You might be better off flying to Jayapura in West Papua (Irian Jaya) and thence to Wamena because penis gourds are more commonly worn on that side of the border.

Be aware when watching 40-year-old National Geographic documentaries about PNG on TV - things have changed in the intervening years !
