Australian Suzanne Noakes has been traveling in
Melanesia for the last two decades, leading trips in Papua New
Guinea for private groups, university alumni and conservation
associations, and has developed a deep understanding of PNG's
people, culture, language, flora and fauna.
She owns a tourism policy company that lobbies overseas
governments to alleviate poverty through tourism initiatives, and
is pursuing her master's degree in this field. She sponsors such
initiatives as the Karawari coconut soap press, teacher
scholarships and improved water collection projects within the
Milne Bay region. Her expertise, energy, rapport with the local
people and warm personal style receives the highest praise from our
travelers, making Suzanne an unsurpassed Tour Leader in the Land of
the Last Unknown.
