Kokoda Track

For most, the Kokoda Track is a fitting reminder of the Australian Army's heroic battles in 1942 to defend Port Moresby, at extraordinary odds, from the advancing forces of the Japanese. These historic encounters on the Owen Stanley Ranges ensure that the Kokoda Track remains a classic journey. In the company of our historian guide we trek across the geographical heart of PNG following trails through tropical rainforests and varied mountain environments. At night we stay in secluded jungle camps and share experiences with the traditional villagers in some of the most remote regions of PNG. We take our time, allowing plenty of opportunity to embrace the history and local culture as well as meet the physical demands of this rugged track. While the trek concludes at Kokoda, our journey continues to the North Coast battlegrounds of Buna and Gona where the final stages of the campaign played out. The local villagers here also share some of their culture, an ideal finish to an incredible journey accross this extraordinary island.
