Rated as one of the top ten treks in the world, the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea holds a significant place in World War II history. It spans 96 km (60 miles) through rugged jungle and local villages.
Steeped in military history, the Kokoda is fast becoming a “rite of passage” for young Australians. It is also an ideal corporate challenge. The experience can be profound on those that take it.
The hardship and the sacrifice faced by the young men who defended the track back in 1942 is difficult to comprehend. Add to that the rich culture of indigenous people’s populating the track and the spectacular virgin rainforest with its many ups and downs.
Kokoda is definitely one of the great walks of the world. In completing the Kokoda track , trekkers climb more vertical metres than an ascent to Mt Everest!
