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.

Happy AnniversaryHappy anniversary to the Australian War Widows Inc., formerly the War Widows Guild of Australia.

This group has been working quietly since 1945 to improve the lives of widows and their children. They have been a strong advocate, a place of respite, and a true friend when the need is greatest.

I wish the best to their current leadership team and all their members for this 75th anniversary.

Well done Joshua Dyer. Lest We ForgetPowerful.. Joshua Dyer (aged 14) was tasked at school to write a poem for Remembrance Day.

An hour later (without any help) he produced this..

ONE THOUSAND MEN ARE WALKING

One thousand men are walking

Walking side by side

Singing songs from home

The spirit as their guide

they walk toward the light milord

they walk towards the sun

they smoke and laugh and smile together

no foes to outrun

these men live on forever

in the hearts of those they saved

a nation truly grateful

for the path of peace they paved

they march as friends and comrades

but they do not march for war

step closer to salvation

a tranquil steady corps

the meadows lit with golden beams

a beacon for the brave

the emerald grass untrampled

a reward for what they gave

they dream of those they left behind

and know they dream of them

forever in those poppy fields

there walks one thousand men

Joshua Dyer 2019 (aged 14)

Lest we forget

This has to be shared. An incredible poem from 14 year old Joshua Dyer

Walk down memory lane. Today I was searching for something on google when I stumbled across a post I made on the 26th July 2007. kokodatrekkingaust.com.au/forums/topic/kokoda-airport-extension-basic-amenities/ When I commenced this trekking business, I was stunned to see my fellow countrymen/women having to wait around for aircraft to arrive and/or depart from Kokoda sitting under the oil palm area next to the airstrip without a toilet in sight. I felt embarrassed so decided to do something about it. I employed Dickson Namari and others to erect a brand new terminal building for me in Kokoda and nice surrounding win haus's for trekkers and others to sit and wait. Sadly I requested a permit to allow for a small tuckerbox to sell drinks and food to trekkers but this was denied by council. When I received the phone call to say it was refused, I was so upset as I felt Kokoda Trekking had given Kokoda something to be really proud of at no cost to themselves or any other trekking company. I felt it was not appreciated and what took months to build at a huge expense, it took only a couple of hours to be pulled down and moved a little further down the airport to what I then created, Orohaven Kokoda Retreat. I even bought two tractors and had them sent to Kokoda to mow the station and airport area. Way back in 2007! With all thats happened in 2020, it seems such a long time ago that I had the urge to create and build an airport terminal building in Kokoda that had a tank, flushing toilet and a shower. ...

Time to reopen: Prime Minister James Marape
September 17, 2020

By REBECCA KUKU
OVERSEAS travel restrictions are expected to be relaxed from next month, and the borders opened up to boost tourism and the economy in general, says Prime Minister James Marape.
“We will start relaxing some travel restrictions (on) testing, clearance and quarantine, so that we can open up our economy again,” he said.
“The New Normal will also be revisited.”
Marape particularly wants to see more tourists coming to PNG to inject life into the industry which since the March Covid-19 state of emergency lockdown had been badly affected.
Most of the people visiting the country now are for business purposes only.
“(They come) mostly for business purposes and we don’t get too many tourists at this time,” he said.
Marape said the PNG economy had been adversely affected by the pandemic after the Government closed its borders and imposed strict travel restrictions in late March.
“(We) encountered one of the biggest challenges in our history,” he said.
Domestic travel restrictions have already been lifted allowing people to move around more.
Airlines have resumed flights to most airports around the country.
Restrictions on international travel have largely remained, with everyone arriving into Jackson airport required to observe a 14-day quarantine in Port Moresby.
Marape reassured the people that things would get better and encouraged citizens to abide by the new normal requirements.
“Our (Covid-19) statistics are not bad. We have 516 cases (so far) and six deaths. From the 516, 301 cases are in the National Capital District,” he said.
Marape advised the people to have faith in the Government “which is doing everything it can to help the economy recover”.
He thanked front liners including doctors, nurses, police officers and soldiers for their sacrifice and dedication during this period.
Meanwhile, five new cases were reported earlier this week, four of which were from Tabubil in Western where the Ok Tedi mine reopened after a six-week closure due to hike in community transmission in its area of operation.
The National Capital District confirmed a single case, that of a 31-year-old man living at Gerehu.
The 13 provinces which have reported cases so far are: NCD (301), Western (189), Central (7), Morobe (5), East Sepik (3), East New Britain (2), West New Britain (2), Milne Bay (2), and one case each from Southern Highlands, Eastern Highlands, West Sepik, New Ireland and Autonomous Region of Bougainville.
National Pandemic Response Controller David Manning has repeated calls for people to strictly follow the Covid-19 protocols to prevent community transmissions.
