I wish to give this forum some positive info on PNG travel. I traveled with private touring arrangements (not a group) made by a "specialty" agency in Australia, which did give me a good price but relied on packaged routes. Nowhere were there any security problems, although there was caution on road trips.
I highly recommend the MTS Discoverer Sepik River trip, which was well organized, escorted and directed. The Goroka Sing Sing was an experience not to miss; however, seeing the participants (52 groups) in their own setting would have been ideal, although impossible to arrange.
For current info on the Goroka/Mt. Hagen areas, one might try to contact Father John Ryan, pastor of St. Mary's Catholic Church.
