Get in touch with nature at Varirata National Park, a park celebrating Papua New Guinea's marvelous wildlife and natural environment. Various marked walking trails wind through the park and lead to lookout points over Port Moresby and the coast. The attraction provides excellent opportunities for birdwatching, but arrive early if you want to catch sight of a Bird of Paradise. Camping sites are provided, but staying overnight here can be dangerous if you do not travel in a large group. Find and inform a park ranger if you intend to camp on site.
