Papua New Guinea is certainly the last wild frontier! I was lucky enough to find myself travelling to PNG last month, and wow! What a wild, pristine environment! I found myself flying up to a spectacular part of the country to TUFI Dive Resort. We flew in over massive mountain ranges and arrived on the East North East part of the country to find this pristine dive resort. TUFI is wow in a big way. I found the reef straight off the wharf, great for macro photography. We then found ourselves on pristine diving reefs just 30 mins by boat from the resort! I have attached a bunch of photos to get you excited:

TUFI Dive Resort is absolutely beautiful, with solid timber decks and amazing big common room with spacious bungalows pitched right on the edge of the only fjords in Papua New Guinea.

Waterfalls Papua New Guinea

Beautiful waterfalls about half an hour from the resort by boat, a fantastic way to enjoy the afternoon.

A big thank you to all the staff and village people for showing me the life in TUFI. A big thank you also to all the dive boys for their expert guiding and knowledge of the absolutely amazing dive locations. This won’t be my last trip to visit TUFI Dive Resort, Papua New Guinea in this incredible part of the world .

Sydney! Welcome to Cairns & The Great Barrier Reef, 3 Day Short Break Getaway!

Did you know that it’s only a 2.5 hour flight from Sydney to Cairns? That’s right! Just take the Airport link from downtown (eg. Circular Key) to the Domestic terminal (about 15 minutes), jump on a plane (Jetstar, Qantas Empire Airways or Virgin) and within 2.5 hours you’re landing in the tropical paradise of Cairns.

A cab takes about 15min from the domestic terminal to downtown Cairns, where you may want to stay at the Mantra Esplanade Hotel – a fantastic location right in the heart of Cairns right on the esplanade, by the water.
