The adventure of walking the Kokoda Track is guaranteed to be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of your life. Set high amidst the beautiful mountains of the Owen Stanley’s, you will explore one of the last untouched wildernesses left in the world. As the Kokoda Historical group treks through vast rainforest, makes numerous river crossings and battles its way across rugged terrain, we will recall how young, ill-trained and ill-equipped militiamen began the fight to save Australia. What better way of paying homage to the men who fought to save Australia, by learning the history while walking in their footsteps.
Starting off either in the village of Kokoda or Ower’s Corner we will make the 96km journey across the rugged terrain of the Kokoda Track, the highlights being: Kokoda, Isurava, Templeton’s Crossing, Lake Myola and Brigade Hill. Kokoda Historical also offers trips to the Northern Beachheads taking in Popondetta, Gona, Sanananda and Buna.
Our pricing is very competitive and safety is our number one priority. Kokoda Historical combines the knowledge of locals and that of Australian historians. Our emphasis is on small groups and the historical significance of the Kokoda Track and the Kokoda campaign.
