On the Track you need to take with you local currency (PNG Kina). You can organise to buy PNG currency through your local bank before you leave Australia or at the money exchanger at the International Airports. We would highly recommend that you have PNG currency before leaving Australia.
Most things on the Track will cost K5 – K10 (5 Kina approx $3.00 AUD) i.e. bunch of bananas, photo with Fuzzy Wuzzy Angel, can of Coke. Around 400 Kina should be plenty.
Please Note: the local villages do not have change to give you, therefore lots of small change is best.
In Port Moresby Eftpos machines are few and far between.
For your own safety we do not recommend you go into Port Moresby town to the local bank.
