The Sepik River runs over for well over a 1000 kilometres from its source deep in the central mountains through to the Bismarck Sea. This remote region made up of vast river systems, beautiful coastlines and mountain ranges take you well beyond the beaten track to villages with one foot still in the stone age. The timeless mystery of Sepik folklore is still proudly displayed right throughout the region with insights into the origin of the country’s greatest tribal adornments, traditions and artefacts.
The four-day Crocodile festival held along the banks of the Sepik pays tribute to the most revered (and feared) of the river’s creatures, the crocodile. Expect spirited dancing and wild costume.
