Place:
Trobriand Islands/Kiriwina Islands, d'Entrecasteaux, Papua New Guinea
Description:
North of the d'Entrecasteaux Islands, lays the Trobriand Islands (now called the Kiriwina Islands). They are 28 low—lying coralline limestone fringed by coral reefs in the Solomon Sea of the southwestern Pacific, PNG, 90 miles north of the southeastern—most extension of the PNG Island. When the Melanesian Discoverer ship could not dock close to shore, tourists entered a small tender or rubber raft and wet—landed. Sometimes, selected destinations were changed necessarily. Kiriwina Island was a substitute. Young canoeists were eager to sell their products to the visitors.
