Embassy Tour, Canberra: 12 reviews and 21 photos
The Embassies (or 'High Commissions' for the British Commonwealth) of overseas countries are located in Canberra. Many are in building styles reflecting those of their country. The Papua New Guinea High Commission is one of the more spectacular examples, displaying a Melanesian longhouse style.
It is interesting that the security concerns at the Embassies/High Commissions seem to be the inverse of the country's size. So the PNG High Commission (see pic 2) actually has a sign outside inviting visitors. Note also the carved poles in that photo.
The High Commissions/Embassy in this and the following tips are within close walking distance of each other.
Address: Forster Cres, Yarralumla.
Directions: Heading down Commonwealth Ave, turn R at the last set of lights before New Parl't House, then first left and the PNG High Commission is on your left just before the road swings to the right.
