The Charms of the Gazelle Peninsula

By Linda Tancs

The Gazelle Peninsula extends northeast from the island of New Britain, Papua New Guinea. It’s where you’ll find cultural treats like the fire dancing of the Baining people, who live in the mountain forests of East New Britain Province. That’s nothing compared with the intense volcanic activity of the region, where Tavurvur and Vulcan have continued to erupt. The region is also where the Germans settled when they colonized the country in the 19th century. Along the route from the main towns of Kokopo and Rabaul are war relics from World War II, barge tunnels and caverns. And if that weren’t enough, nearby Duke of York Islands offers up an unspoiled paradise perfect for snorkeling, diving and picnicking.

Excellent website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any community forums that cover the same
topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get opinions
from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.

If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
