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

On one of our Anzac treks in 2005, our oldest trekker by the name of Walter Kelly was making his way along the Kokoda Trail, walking in honour of some soldiers he met in a hospital at Sogeri during the war. Walter promised them if he ever made it home he would one day go back to PNG and walk the track. I can still remember him so clearly like it was yesterday. In fact back then the road to Owers' Corner was only 4WDrive when wet and on his trek it was the only time our work horse the troopy could not get to the drop off point. Walter as a result had to walk the furthest of any of our trekkers but he still made it to Kokoda. His personal porter was Tom Hango. He asked me if Tom could fly back in with him and stay at the hotel to keep him company until the service at Bomana. Tom did that and when he bid his goodbye at the airport, Walker turned to him and gave him everything and caught the plane back home with only the clothes on his back. Yes still remember, Walter Kelly. If you would like to read more, please click on the following link. Walter assured me he was a professional bike rider in his younger days and had ridden from Melbourne to Sydney 88 times. He said just before his trip to PNG he entered a race on the Great Ocean Road. Said others had pulled out but he finished, yes one very fit 81 year old: www.pngbd.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13104 ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1148: Its been a hot and humid day for this group. Our 78 year old came in last around 5:30pm at Efogi II but Pat is just so impressed with him. The others in the group reached their destination around 5pm. Tomorrow they head to where our other group are tonight, Templeton's Crossing after walking through Naduri where they will no doubt stop and admire the plaque that was put there last year. A gutsy effort by everyone today especially Warner. ... See MoreSee Less

Trek 1147: I just got off the phone following an update from Christopher our guide. He said everyone has done really well today and they arrived at Templeton's Crossing as per their trekking schedule. Tomorrow plan a) is to reach Efogi, plan b) is Brigade Hill. So far he said not one problem among his group. Tomorrow they will cross paths with trekkers from 'Trek 1148' walking in the opposite direction. No doubt this will be followed by a bit of excitement as boys say hi to their friends and relatives. Trekkers might ask each other what they can expect up ahead. Keep going trek 1147, you are doing well. ... See MoreSee Less

Kokoda Trekking

Trek 1148: Trekkers and staff in this group are making their way up to Brigade Hill. This hill is a tough climb. In one of our Kokoda Challenge Races, a well known Australian Adventurer Runner Damon Goerke who was leading the race at that stage remarked to me: Gail I was half way up Brigade Hill and I saw a log and spread myself out on it to take a break as I was absolutely stuffed. He added, his thoughts went to the fact he had the best shoes; best gear; fittest he had ever been in his life; power gels to him the best chance of winning the race and yet here he was lying on a log asking himself how he was going to get to the top of the hill. He said he later looked up and saw a PNG local standing there looking down at him. He said he thought he must be laughing at him, so he got himself off that log, pumped out his chest and one foot after another got to the top of the hill. Damon a short time later was running down to Efogi Village to our checkpoint with just about everyone in the village outside to welcome him. Damon raced twice, this story was from his 2006 race. Walking in the opposite direction is Wayne Urina Tihimi one of our staff who came 2nd in the same race. Wayne passed Damon at Isurava Memorial. Wayne is a practical joker, he said when he saw Damon he remarked, I caught you, bye bye, see you in Kokoda. At that stage Damon thought he was almost to Kokoda but later found he still had a couple of hours to go.

So think of trek 1148 today as they make their way up Brigade Hill and knowing how they may feel once they too reach the top.
