Trek with Kokoda Trekking & have an adventure of a lifetime

The Kokoda Trail is one of the world’s great treks, linking the southern and northern coast of Papua New Guinea, it is a challenge to be enjoyed by the fit bushwalker. The Kokoda Trail and Sogeri area have a history of bitter fighting between Australian and Japanese armies during the early days of the war in the Pacific in World War II.

The 96 km Kokoda trail passes through rugged mountainous country of rainforest, jungles of fern, orchids, birds and clean mountain streams which tumble into steep valleys. The unspoilt villages throughout the Kokoda Track will welcome you and the Koiari and Orokaiva people will greet you with smiles and tempt you with seasonal fruit and vegetables.

Treks 1104 & 1107: Congratulations are in order as everyone is now in Kokoda. I just got off the phone after talking with Marilyn and Darren. They both seemed very happy with themselves and so they should be. Darren said it was much much tougher than when he walked it before due to the rain and mud. He said without the boys help he doubts he would have made it. Marilyn said she has a few blisters here and there but lucky she was with her sister who is a trained nurse. For years Marilyn has been following other trekkers progress through our website but said it was harder than she had thought it would be. Well done to you all. Look forward to hearing more stories from my cousins when back home. To all our staff, thanks for taking care of the trekkers and getting them safely to Kokoda. Photographs from all treks will be posted once camera's have been returned to our base. ... See MoreSee Less

Maryanne will also cook for the two remaining treks also coming off the track later today. Hope they like pizza! Have no idea if this group enjoy a beer, if they do, picture them cooling off like previous trekkers in the creek that runs alongside where they will stay tonight. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1105: Our latest group of trekkers were up bright and early to catch their flight to Popondetta this morning. This trek will head to Isurava Memorial for Anzac Day. So far today, they would have been up around 4am to be ready to head to the airport to book in for their flight. This was followed by a 20 minute flight to Popondetta where they were met by our hire car company and driven up to Kokoda for the commencement of their trek. They will have a short day today and tomorrow will continue until they reach the Memorial where they will sleep. The following morning they will wake up on Anzac Day and be part of a service being held there. Later they will continue their walk and stop most likely at Eora Creek. The guide for this trek is Earnest Jinga. Trekkers include: Darren Thomas; Hamish Patterson and his friend Shaun Foster ... See MoreSee Less

Treks 1104 & 1107: These two treks are now sticking together. I just received a phone call from another trek that commenced in Kokoda today walking towards Isurava Memorial for Anzac Day. The guide said he has met up with some of the boys but trekkers not yet as they are still making their way down off the mountain. Picture them today walking through the 'wild choko' fields on their way to the finish point. Keep going, not too far away now and you can celebrate your successful crossing of the Kokoda Trail in wet muddy rainy conditions. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1144: I will use a PNG expression, they have fired in Kokoda - translation, trekkers have sucessfully completed their trek. Earlier today they walked under the Kokoda Archway and the last I heard were down at Clement's family area at Saga enjoying some refreshments. Well done everyone, trekkers and our KTL boys. Later in the day they will make their way down to Orohaven Pija where they will spend the night. They were all supposed to be up early and fly back to Port Moresby early in the morning....but....PNGAir have upgraded them to a bigger aircraft and later book in time of 13:35 which will see them back in Port Moresby around 3ish tomorrow. No photographs as yet of this group but perhaps they were jumping for joy like the trekker in the photograph below. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1144: Have not heard from Clement today. Last night it has been confirmed that they overnighted at Alola. Suspect they are somewhere around Isurava Village or even further down at Deniki. Either way, they will walk off the track hours ahead of the other two groups unless they start late and spend some time swimming at Hoi. Will update once I hear from Clement or one of the porters assigned to this trek. As you can see in the photograph below, Kokoda is not too far away when they can celebrate a successful crossing of the track. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1104 & Trek 1107: Both of these treks are spending the night together at Alola Village. Tomorrow they will walk off the track in Kokoda but not before another big day. Early tomorrow they will walk down and into Isurava Memorial which is an historical point of the track with a lot of war history, but where the memorial is located is beautiful. The girls tomorrow will not doubt be emotional as they reflect on the memory of their father who sadly passed away this year. Am sure Darren even for the 2nd time on the track will in awe of this area of the track. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1107: Hot on the heels of trek 1104 is Darren, Eric Uwea, Tom Hango and Pescol Kageni. I have not heard from Eric today but their GPS has them in approx the same area as Pat's group so imagine they will all catch up sometime tomorrow. The first pic below is how trekkers used to cross over Eora Creek, but in recent years they have been spoilt with a cane bridge! Think of them tomorrow crossing this loud raging river! ...

Trek 1144: Clement called around 2pm to say they had reached Eora Creek and that they were going to push forward to Alola for the night. It was strongly suggested that they stop at Eora Creek to give a chance for the other two treks coming up the rear to catch up a little as the plan is for all of them to arrive in Kokoda and head down to Orohaven Pija together without them having to wait for too long for the others to arrive. He said they are all fine and doing well but that the track was very wet! Tomorrow morning they will reach Isurava Memorial. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1107: Eric called and said they were camped for the night at Brigade Hill. He said Darren was resting as was absolutely spent...then added....we are too, a BIG BIG DAY. Ofi Creek to Brigade Hill, tough going but thats the schedule Darren has set for himself. Eric said they are still experiencing wet conditions. Keep going guys you are doing really well to reach this point given the hours spent on the track. Picture them walking into the half way point of Efogi. Tomorrow the plan is to reach Naduri or push further on depending on where they decide to pull up for the night. Please note, not actual photographs from this trek. Darren's photographs will be posted on their return to the base once back in Port Moresby. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1104: As predicted, they passed the half way point today of Efogi and have moved slightly further to Launumu (Efogi II) for the night. They were planning to head to Naduri and had the time but through the track grapevine they heard there were two other trekking companies camped there so decided to stop and not push on. Seems today children from the village came and sang for the girls. Seems its still wet! Please note photographs posted are from our files. Their own trek photographs will be uploaded by Pat on their return to our base. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1104: Pat sent me a text message to say they reached Menari at 2:30pm this afternoon. He added that the girls continue to do well and that himself and porters are ok. He added, steady rain from 1:30-2:30pm. So guess they all got soaked this afternoon making their way down to the village. The plan for tomorrow depending on how Marilyn goes, is to pass by Efogi after restocking with food from the half way point that was flown in by chopper, then head down to Naduri for the night. He will update again tomorrow. ... See MoreSee Less

Darren did well today and Tom and Pescol's thongs survived the day! I asked why they did not wear shoes and I could hear them laughing in the background - like der, who needs them! They are surrounded by large groups and tomorrow the plan is to escape and try their best to get ahead of the other groups and head to Brigade Hill for the night. ... See MoreSee Less

He said they had a very big day today from Ioribaiwa to Nauro apparently arriving there around 5...well that was the last of the group. Margaret and her personal porter Ivan was an hour ahead of the others. Pat asked Ivan how she went and he said, Boss, I need a rest, she is too fast for me, lol. Tomorrow they will head to Menari for the night. Porters are fine too and enjoying the trek. It was Marilyn's 51st Birthday so she woke up to chocolates for breakfast as they celebrated her birthday. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1107: Darren Smith arrived in town this afternoon walking for the second time in the opposite direction, this time from Owers' Cnr. He was supposed to overnight and start tomorrow but due to the rain and slippery conditions I suggested to him that we were ready and prepared to take him straight to Owers' Corner therefore giving him an earlier start in the morning as he is on a fast trek and has to catch up to the two lead treks ahead of him. He sounded wrapped with the idea when I spoke to him and they set off around 2pm from Jackson's airport. The guide for this trek is Eric Uwea from Sogeri. Darren has Tom Hango as his personal porter who has won one of our races in less than 18 hours Owers' to Kokoda so he is in good hands. He must be fit as he has set himself a 4 night 5 day trekking experience. Go Darren, have a great trek. ... See MoreSee Less
