Commencing at Boroko accommodation area, the group will travel out to Bomana War Cemetery where they will pay respects to the fallen soldiers of World War II.
Trekkers will then continue along the Sogeri Road stopping at various locations along the way such as Sogeri Monument and McDonald’s Corner before reaching their final destination of Owers’ Corner Archway.
All Kokoda treks either commence and/or complete their walk across the Kokoda Track at this point and it will all give students an idea of the terrain and what our soldiers faced during the war.
The walk will be led by our local historian guide, Clement Harika.
