Welcome to the Papua New Guinea
Australia Alumni Association


The Papua New Guinea Australia Alumni Association (PNGAAA) is one of the most recognised associations in the country. Established in 2006, the Association provides support to Papua New Guineans who have studied in Australia or with Australian government support in PNG. It is a network designed to keep alumni connected with each other and with Australian institutions and people.



The PNGAAA Executive regrets to advise members that the 2020 Annual General Meeting has been deferred to Wednesday 5 August.
