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.

Kokoda Trekking

July is a very busy month for us both in PNG and here in Australia as we prepare for several treks coming and going both ends of the track and co-ordinating KTL boys, trekker needs, packing food; organising flights and accommodation; just basically making sure everything comes together on the day. Today an early morning start as had to meet up with Angela (trek 1124) and Pat (1143) and got them away to PNG with some 18 backpacks in total, yes excess baggage was huge! Airlines love Kokoda Trekking (well not the time to book in but the excess)! In PNG Chris is getting 'new' bank accounts opened for some 'new' boys. Yesterday over 5 hours at the BSP bank and again today for the Sanananda boys! Food has gone to Sogeri to be packed for our sub-contract treks which was packed into boxes during this week to cater for 50+ boys! Bought more uke'ule's yesterday for music (forgot how many I have purchased in 2018 this year alone). Purchased and froze the best juicy steaks I could find to head to Sanananda together with Chicken Maryland and some sausages for a BBQ for when 'Trek 1143' ends up at the beachheads to relax next to the beach following their trek. Also more pizza ingredients, ham, cheese, pineapple, salami destination Kokoda for many more pizza's to be cooked by Maryanne and our caterers in Kokoda. Whew, I need a HOLIDAY, lol - now its up to our KTL boys and Pat to make us proud that all the logistics is well worthwhile! Go team KTL, we are all here for each other. To Nikki and Zac, have a fantastic trek and thanks for choosing KTL as your sub-contractor in PNG. Thanks to Russell Eroro for the packing of all the ration packs, weighing them into 23kg bags and helping with the loading and transport to Brisbane today. A huge 'team' effort. To Nathan, who is always on call 24/7 to handle enquiries etc from all our trekkers a huge thank you too. Did I forget, extra uniforms that needed to be sent up to cater for over 110 boys who will be on the track month of July. Did I mention we have also had 20+ boys in Port Moresby at our base waiting to walk back home plus 7 Sanananda boys staying with relatives all hungry boys needing to be fed. Also 20 + KTL boys on the track who walked from the opposite direction who will turn and walk back home. First boys employed from Sanananda in 2018 start their trek 19th July. As Pat's trek was ending up in their Sanananda it was only fair some boys from that area of PNG get a chance to walk the track. Guess they now need to prove to Pat that coastal boys can carry backpacks not just the boys of Kokoda! ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1149: I received a phone call from an excited Ramsy Idau this morning from Maguli Range saying they were on target and heading towards finishing at Owers' Corner come tomorrow morning. Stephen was a bit sick yesterday but is ok today. No doubt a huge challenge for these two trekkers but for Ramsey the winner of our last Kokoda Challenge Race in 18 hours non stop, he loves a fast pace. Three other of our Kokoda Challenge boys are on this trek. Jessie Aire, Lancelot and Mathias Geroia, all really fit boys. ... See MoreSee Less

However, despite all of this, everyone is doing well and tonight find themselves at Templeton's Crossing and by the sounds of it, they will have the company of a couple of other trekking companies sharing the same campsite. ...
