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.

Trek 1133: Sarah arrived at Templeton's Crossing at 2pm this afternoon so continues to do well.
Trek 1175: This trek is also going well with everyone at the campsite area by 3:30pm this afternoon. Pat said he is very proud of the boys carrying their own backpacks as they appear happy and content - apparently still smiling with no complaints. Today saw them experience quite a lot of rain but everyone still did ok. Keep up the good work you are all doing just great. Tomorrow the plan is to head to Naduri for the night.

Trek 1175: Pat said he had trouble getting a line out so sent this text message to me: Everyone went well today.
Been a big day and our flight from Port Moresby to Popondetta was good. On the way up to Kokoda one of the 4WDrives had a flat tyre which caused a bit of a delay. Once on the track we all had lunch with some local fruits, and the boys loved it. We started again at 1300 and stopped at Hoi. Some struggled, but all good. He added, good pizzas from Maryanne today. Tomorrow the plan is to head to Alola for the night. Think of them tomorrow as they head up through the wild choko fields and walk through Isurava Village, before ending up at the Isurava Memorial site. Following a service there, they will continue on to Alola.

Kokoda Trekking

Papua New Guinea celebrates their 43rd year of independence today. Throughout the country there will be a sea of 'Red, Gold and Black'. You will note our t/shirts are also in PNG colours. Our background: My family arrived in PNG in 1972, prior to independence and through our business Kokoda Trekking continue to be involved even now in 2018. Two of our four children were born in Lae, Nathan and Mikayla. Our family have lived in Mt Hagen, Lae, Goroka, Port Moresby and now work with the people from the Oro Province. I have seen many many changes. Last week in Australia had me thinking of their culture, their pride in their nation and the love for their national anthem. I saw a young girl in Brisbane not stand for our Australian anthem, but in PNG, just about everyone I know can sing theirs from start to finish and with such gusto. The majority of people understand the problems that face their struggling nation, but they all love their country and try their very best to survive. On the Kokoda Trail they bend over backwards to give you all a great trek and help wherever they can. We encourage our staff to talk and mix with you our trekkers and it is hoped that when you leave PNG you have learn't a little about their lives and their culture. During my time in PNG I have always worked and trained so many. When this business was commenced, I found out there were mainly overseas guides and very few PNG guides. It was my goal to change that. Kokoda Trekking are proud to say say we only have one Australian Guide Pat Vainerere and all others are PNG Guided treks. My family continue to promote tourism and provide employment and income for several. Wages; guesthouse accommodation; hire cars; store goods; trek fees and so much more. Having worked for over 40 years in PNG, we created a website, www.pngbd.com to promote tourism and business. What always amazes me is how little they have but yet manage to be so happy. The Kokoda Trail/Track is just one of many fantastic areas to visit in PNG. Throughout PNG, so different to anywhere else in the world. I once helped a rich businessman from Taiwan to holiday in remote areas. He loved it. On his return he asked me, WHERE ARE ALL THE TOURISTS, Sepik River, much better than Amazon! Goroka Cultural Show, was something I will never experience again in my lifetime. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY to all our PNG friends, our wonderful guides and porters and all their extended families. ...

Everyone is ok and looking forward to their walk across the track. ... See MoreSee Less
