    • For most the Kokoda Track is a fitting reminder of the Australian Army's heroic battles fought in 1942, to defend Port Moresby at extraordinary odds from the advancing forces of the Japanese. These historic encounters on the Owen Stanley Ranges ensure that the Kokoda Track remains a classic. In the company of our expert guide we trek across the geographical heart of PNG following trails from the tropical rainforests to the rarified climes of the ranges. At night we stay in secluded jungle camps and share experiences with the traditional villagers in some of the most remote regions of PNG. It takes ten days to cover the 96km trail - offering tremendous rewards and a feeling of accomplishment as we complete the final stages from the highlands to the township of Kokoda.
