Walk the path of history on the iconic Kokoda Track
1942 saw the Kokoda Track as a scene of bitter fighting when the Australian Army fought to defend Port Moresby from advancing Japanese forces. Today, walking that same track has become an iconic pilgrimage for those wanting to honour the ANZAC spirit.
Regarded as one of the world’s great treks, the Kokoda Track links the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea across 96 kilometres of rocky mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and pristine villages.
On this inspiring adventure, you will trek the track by day, open to the unforgiving and inspiring beauty of Papua New Guinea’s tropical rainforest. At night, you will stay in isolated camps, swapping stories with local Koiari and Orokaiva people and falling asleep to the nocturnal sounds of the jungle.
Not for the faint-hearted but certainly for the big-hearted, this really is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
