In the first week of November 2020, the annual two-day Huhu War Canoe Festival will take place again showcasing the fascinating culture of the War Canoes unique to the mainland bay area of Milne Bay Province.

Expect to see traditional war canoes with warriors on board demonstrating paddling techniques and reenacting war raids just as their ancestors did during the time of cannibalism.

Experience the Huhu culture in an intimate, authentic village setting and be enriched by the interaction with the local people and cultural displays of traditional dancing, food exchange and so much more.

Prepare to be amazed!
