Papau New Guinea has a long and established history, a beautiful landscape which was found home by ancient inhabitants who have said to have dated back from over 50,000 years ago.
Known in the beginning as simply New Guinea, this landmass was one of the first to be populated by modern humans, migrating from the time Australia was being colonized.
Today, the people are largely descendants of the Papuans, with their origins coming many smaller island countries like Fiji, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea itself. There are more than 800 local languages and dialects, and over 7 million people currently living in the region.
