  • Well done Shane and good luck to all trekkers. Congratulations to Dylen also on his first 'official' trek as a Personal Porter. Knowing Jessie, who was on our trek a few months ago and was superb, as we do, then Dylen will be just as good>

  • Hi Andrew & Watto

    Having trekked twice now with Kokoda Trekking Limited and observed other groups on the Track on both ocassions, I have no doubt whatsoever that I would not have enjoyed it any better, or experienced anything better if I had trekked with another Company. I too also tried to contact another group in 2004 and received no answer at…[Read more]

  • Great song Debbie and I hope the boys are still singing it as their singing on the Track is an absolute delight and I hope you had the opportunity of listening to them sing, 'One Pella Mary', it is a favourite of mine and was sung on numerous ocassions on both my treks.

    Best wishes

  • Hi all

    Just a follow up to the previous posters and specifically Choppereid, who plans to trek in 2013, just on my experience, i would like to offer a few comments/suggestions:

    Firstly about your knees, I can understand your plight, as I'm 67 at the moment and was when I trekked last and I've had 'Squash' knees for the past 35 years and other…[Read more]

  • Congratulations Gail & Nathan on organising another sterling Kokoda Challenge Race, importantly on the 70th Anniversary of the Milne Bay conflict, a very important, but sometimes overlooked battle area.

  • Congratulations Brendan on your first Trek as a Guide and I have no doubt that it was a success. From last time I know that you would have an over-riding concern for the welfare of your Trek Members. Let me know how you went.

  • I have just heard that Brendan Buka, who was Lara's Personal porter on our recent Trek No. 872, has been promoted to a Trek Guide for KTL and offered his first trek in early June, which should be about his 35th trek.

    Hi PeteHow interesting, it would seem that it was an article done on my trek in '05 in the then Pictorial and yes I mentioned Gail in very glowing terms and Gail even took an add in the feature. It would be interesting to see a scan or photo of the article, which turned out to be 4 pages with photos.Best regardsWarren (Waza)PS I'm off to trek…[Read more]

  • Just having a quick read during my lunch, realising that I only have 3 weeks to go before we hit the Track again.Two items come to mind, firstly from rooster, commenting on trek numbers and I have to agree wholeheartedly as when I trekked in '05, we shared ANZAC Day at the Isurava Memorial Site with what seemed like a 100 trekkers from another…[Read more]

  • Congratulations to the three lucky winners of Gail's generous discount offer.This gesture, once again demonstrates what a wonderful and generous person Gail is and all of her family and business partners, I doubt if any other Trekking Company does as much for the people of the Oro Province and trekkers as Gail does.Well done GailRegards Waza

  • Hello Jenny and also YvieDon't worry too much about age Jenny, if you have prepared, then you will manage the daily walk. Yes, it can be tough at times, but you just stop and take a breather, no one will mind, least of all the Guides and Porters and once you get your breath back, just start walking again, every step forward is a step closer to…[Read more]
