  • MOMENTS IN MELANESIA A photo collection from & about Suzanne Noakes
  • The May 1962 National Geographic magazine sparked Suzanne’s life long interest in Melanesian countries within the vast Oceania region. (Vol. 121, No. 5)
  • For over 20 years, Suzanne has traveled extensively throughout Melanesia as a tour guide and promoter of travel products into the South Pacific. Those travels have given her access to some magnificent people and places she has captured in thousands of photos. This presentation shares some of those images.
