Niugini Caver was a journal devoted to documenting cave exploration and speleology (the science of caves) in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The journal was published on behalf of the PNG Cave Exploration Group, an informal association of those engaged in cave exploration in PNG. It was founded in early 1973 by RM (Mike) Bourke and from 1977 it was edited by Malcolm Pound and then Geoff Francis. Twenty-seven issues of the journal were produced between 1973 and 1982, containing 1010 pages.

The focus of the journal was documenting caves in PNG. Many other cave-related topics were covered, including documentation of cave use by indigenous Papua New Guineans (rock art, burials, shelter, hunting, legends and spirits). Other articles address karst geomorphology, cave decoration (stalactites etc), bats, swiftlets and other cave fauna, bibliographies, short biographies of prominent cave explorers in PNG and a history of cave exploration in PNG from the early 1960s.

The 27 numbers of the journal are now available on the web. These are accompanied by a comprehensive index prepared by Tracy Harwood (tracy@editingandindexing.com.au) and proofread by Mike Bourke (mike.bourke@anu.edu.au).
