The Highlight of the program being the War Kenu & Kundu Festival, a small and friendly cultural show, allowing attendees to interact with the performers. The Kenu & Kundu Festival is a celebration of culture and tradition of War Canoes and inherited Kundu drums.  Activities include canoe racing, traditional food exchanges including the popular Yam exchange, traditional sing-sings and dancing performances.  Before the Festival you will get a chance to discover other parts of Papua New Guinea, including the Highlands and Sepik areas.
