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.

RIP Wallace Lemeki, gone but never forgotten. You were a loyal and trusted guide, you loved your walk with every single trekker under your care, you loved your family and also your music. Its hard to believe you passed away so young in February 2013. One of the highlights of his life was when he got to meet Mal Meninga in Australia when attending the Kokoda Challenge Event on the Gold Coast. Dan Towler can be seen in the photograph taken with Wallace at Bomana War Cemetery following the Anzac Day Service on the right hand side middle row. Dan requested Wallace a couple of times to be his guide. Dan is coming back again April 2019 this time with his nephew but sadly Wally will not be by his side singing and playing his ukulele. ...

Hi everyone, a belated Happy New Year. During the off season I went on a road trip to Shepparton, Victoria to spend Christmas and New Year with my elderly father who turns 90 on the 22nd Jan. During my time with him, he handed to me a book written by Andrew Johnston titled 'The Forgotten Rising Sons'. The reason this book was given to my father was the fact that his brother was in a training camp prior to being sent to Papua New Guinea. His name was Allan McPaul and he shared a tent with a red head by the name of Kevin Hurst who they nicknamed 'Brickie' aged 18. On one particular morning, Allan was off to do underground mining and tunneling lessons with B Coy, whilst Kevin and the other G Coy men were doing demolitions. Wishing each other a good day, they knew they'd meet up again at the end of the day. Later that day whilst B Coy men were returning to the camp they heard part of an announcement over the PA system that all afternoon and evening activities had been cancelled, but they did not hear the initial announcement about an explosion. Later they heard that 26 men had been killed on the demolition range. Deep in thought and sorrow they hoped it wasn't their mates or anyone they knew. Sadly for Allan, he learned his tent mate Brickie was one of the 26 men who lost their life that day in training. In the photograph below, the funeral procession arrives at the Wagga Wagga War Cemetery. Soon the bodies would be removed from the trucks by six comrades and escorted by family members to their final resting place watched by thousands of mourners. As Kevin 'Brickie' Hurst's coffin was unloaded off the truck, the strong arms of Allan McPaul were there to carry his tent mate to his final resting place. unquote - source: 'The Forgotten Rising Sons' by Andrew Johnston. My Uncle in his final days mentioned to my father several times how this affected him all through his life. In reflection, we have to remember that not all lives are lost in combat, sadly some like these 26 young men lost theirs in a training camp and are buried in the Wagga Wagga War cemetery. Thank you to my brother-in-law Ian Thomas who lives in Wagga Wagga for driving out to the cemetery and taking the photograph of Kevin (Brickie) Hurst's grave this morning 20th January 2019.
