Australian Governor-General arrives in PNG on 5-day visit


Australian Governor-General Quentin Bryce arrived in Papua New Guinea today on a five-day visit.
She flew into Port Moresby and was welcomed by the unique sounds of a bamboo band from Bougainville island.
Ms Bryce is scheduled to meet her PNG counterpart, Sir Michael Ogio, and prime minister Peter O'Neill.
During the visit Ms Bryce will travel to Rabaul on New Britain Island and to Alotau on Papua New Guinea's eastern tip.
On Thursday, weather permitting, Ms Bryce will take part in Anzac Day commemorations at the village of Kokoda.
She will also visit numerous local initiatives that focus on education, health and violence against women.
