It became part of the Mandated Territory of New Guinea declared in by the League of Nations and administered by l: Kavieng. Papua New Guinea is a young and dynamic country, with a very complex geological-tectonic history.

But in short summary, its history has involved volcanic arc initiation, closure and accretion over the last 30 million years. This resulted in several belts of porphyry deposits in continental and oceanic settings. New Ireland’s never-ending beaches, popular cultural festivals, smattering of islands and uncrowded reefs and waves make it a dream destination in Papua New Guinea.
