Papua New Guinea in October

Papua New Guinea in Oceania has hot tropical weather, with April through November the driest months, and June to September the best time to visit. However, it should be noted that ‘dry season’ here just means it is not as wet as the monsoons of December to March, not that it will not rain. June to September sees rain of about 100mm, though it is not constant, so not a problem for avoiding showers. Temperatures usually range between 25 and 30 °C (77-86 °F), though they can vary depending on topography, as the nation has several microclimates. The coastal areas and lowlands are usually hot and humid, the highlands cooler and less humid. Largely untouched, the country is an ideal destination for those that really want to get off the beaten track, offering virgin rainforests and unexplored mountains and the chance to visit indigenous tribes that have had virtually no contact with the modern world.
