A message from the Director General

Welcome to the Office of Tourism, Arts and Culture (OTAC) website.

The OTAC Director GeneralThe Office of Tourism, Arts and Culture is a policy secretariat established within a sector that encompasses the areas mandated to PNG’s Tourism Promotion Authority (PNGTPA); National Museum and Art Gallery (NMAG); and National Cultural Commission (NCC). It is our hope that this website may prove to be a convenient ‘one-stop-shop’ and a helpful source for information and direction to relevant sister agencies’ sites. Browse through our pages to explore tips and pointers on cultural events, traditional and contemporary arts, and our growing tourism that rides on a plethora of some of the most diverse and amazing biodiversity, cultures, and geography found anywhere on the planet.

For more specific information about the sector, visit the PNG Tourism Promotion Authority (TPA) website; and the PNG National Museum and Art Gallery (NMAG) webpage. The National Cultural Commission website is still under construction.
