Manus Province

A legendary water hole that never dries up

Locally, it is called "OCTOPUS WATER" as legend has it that it was occupied by a giant octopus.

According to Legend, there was a warrior called Chongin who was travelling by canoe along the beach when the octopus grabbed the pole he was using to propel the canoe forward.

The giant octopus then told him to bring it to a water hole in the bush so it can live there.

Chongin brought the octopus over to this water hole and came over regularly to feed it.

The octopus instructed Chongin that it will only be fed uncooked protein.
