kokoda trail: one of the world's great treks


10 Night ESSENTIAL KOKODA TREK
8 nights on the Trail with PNG Guide.
This is one of our most popular trips, with a steady pace and spare time on most days to enjoy the life style at villages along the way. The majority of Treks operate from Kokoda to Port Moresby. We follow the main Trail, with a diversion to Naduri Village to meet Ovoru Indiki (one of the last “fuzzy wuzzy angels”), and Myola Lake, a peaceful rest spot and important airdrop site for WWII Australian troops.

10 Night BATTLEFIELDS TREK
8 nights on the Trail with PNG Guide.
Since 1942 some villages have changed location - to be closer to their gardens, water supplies or an airstrip. Similarly the route of the WWII Track has “shifted” to bypass a fallen tree, disused village site, or for more direct access between villages. Our Battlefields Trek follows the WWII Track as faithfully as possible, staying where practical at Battalion campsites, or significant fields such as Brigade Hill and Isurava. The Trek covers slightly more difficult terrain where we leave the day track for more overgrown areas.

10 Night HISTORICAL TREK
8 nights on the Trail with Australian Guide.
This Trek is favoured by those with a greater interest in the military history of the Trail. The Kokoda Campaign of 1942 was complex and our Australian historical guides, most with a military background, will explain the various stages of advance, retreat and the final recapturing of Kokoda. Trek from Port Moresby to Kokoda and follow the chronology of the campaign and visit the major battle sites.
