Challenge your body, mind & soul

Surrounded by dense greenery, glistening rivers and incredible views, it is hard to believe that just over 70 years ago the historical 96 km Kokoda Trail was the site of one of the bloodiest battles for Australian troops in World War II. Even nowadays, to conquer the trail requires dedication, courage and mateship, just like it did back in the 1940s. Begin the adventure in Port Moresby before visiting the Kokoda Memorial and undertaking seven days of steamy trekking through the dense Papua New Guinea heat. Meet friendly locals along the way, test your personal stamina and undertake a journey as challenging mentally as it is physically.



FOLLOW IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS

Some would agree that the best way to learn about Australian History is to follow their footsteps, the footsteps of the hundreds of soldiers who died to protect the future of our beautiful country. Many of us do not know just how close this battle came, but to walk in their shoes and listen to the stories from our experienced guides gives you a whole new level of understanding, appreciation and respect.
