Discovery of the Decade

Ending this decade with a discovery of a perfect spot for a truly Papua New Guinean experience.

Now you may ask me, what do you mean by a Papua New Guinean experience? Well, I have friends who have traveled to Papua New Guinea and want to soak up what Papua New Guinea is all about. Friends who have visited for the weekend, stayed 2 weeks and even some stayed as long as 3 months.


Off course, flying them to Kokopo, Kavieng, Manus, Mt Hagen and Goroka would be the perfect cultural indoctrination for them.

But how about those who are here for business? That time is against them and all they need is an injection of Papua New Guinea in a day?

I dont want to show them Apec Haus, the hotels, the potholes and Gordon’s market. Nor do I want to show them the museums, the Parliament Haus or even the filthy Boroko Bus stop. I want to show them the real Papua New Guinean living even if it is only 1 night.

So my quest of find the perfect spot lead me to this discovery of the decade!

Drive to Gelebara from Gabone Village

Gelebara Kite Club……

A small setup by my newfound friend Pako. Now, I didnt think I’d find this place after hearing it from a few friends. But after scruff-ling over the internet for a few days, I came across Pako’s contact details.

Fate has it that the number works…….and within a few hours, the drive to discovery the perfect ‘shot of Papua New Guinea’ begins.



Gelebara Kite Club offers visitors a full beachfront, has 3 huts which are for rent, visitors can bring their own tents and setup. They provide cooking facilities, also pit toilets, rain water, and the can cook for you as well.

You can even lease the whole property for the weekend and have your own private functions, beach weddings or just time alone

What more can you ask for as an experience?

You can swim out the sea….walk a mile on the white sandy beach and as the sun sets, watch God paint the sky for you.



Oh btw…..there is 3G reception as well.
