Kokoda Track

For many, the Kokoda Track is a fitting reminder of the Australian Army's heroic battles in 1942 to defend Port Moresby, in extraordinary conditions, from the advancing forces of the Japanese. And with 2017 marking the 75th anniversary of the Kokoda Trail campaign, there's never been a more significant time to tackle this challenging trek on the Owen Stanley Ranges. In the company of our expert guide we trek across the geographical heart of Papua New Guinea 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. To improve acclimatisation and provide an all-encompassing military perspective, you can take an optional excursion to the North Coast battlegrounds of Buna and Sanananda, where the final stages of the campaign played out (additional cost applies). The local villagers here also share their culture, which is an ideal accompaniment to an incredible journey across this extraordinary island.
