A significant producer of coffee, Goroka is the capital of PNG’s Eastern Highlands Province. A town of around 19,000 at an altitude of 1600m, Goroka has a pleasant climate and is known for being a relaxed and friendly place. Culturally it is famous for the Asaro mudmen who cover themselves in mud and don huge frightening mud masks before heading off on raids. Attractions within the town include the Raun Raun Theatre, Mt Kis lookout and the JK McCarthy Museum, celebrating the life of one of PNG’s legendary patrol officers who wrote the classic PNG book, Patrol Into Yesterday.
