Walking The Kokoda Track
Are you thinking about walking the Kokoda Track? Of course we would say this is a great idea as we have been taking trekkers across the Kokoda Track for the last 19 years, but there are many things to consider when choosing whether to go in the first place and with whom. We hope this page on the Kokoda Track will help you answer some of those questions. And if not, you can always give us a call for a chat.

Why No Roads For Your Kokoda?
That’s right, we put you front and centre on your journey across the Kokoda Track.
Not only are we one of the longest running Kokoda Operators, but we also run expeditions all over the world to some of the most remote locations on the planet. We bring our global expertise to Kokoda to ensure you have a great and safe trek.
Our treks are assisted by our Local Teams who come from various villages along the Track. We only use local Guides from the Kokoda Track, not from elsewhere. This ensures we will have a safe journey across the Track.
The people who live along the Track are Seventh Day Adventists. Their Sabbath runs from Friday evening to Saturday evening. That is why we do not trek on a Saturday. They have asked all companies to do this (we are the only one that abides by it). Plus it gives us a day to rest, see what it’s like to live along the Track and have a moment to pause on our journey.
Food is so important to us. The only thing we love more than preparing great food is eating it. You will notice the difference too. You will have FRESH food served each night, from Indonesian Curries, to Italian Pastas and maybe even a pizza or a donut along the way.
Most Kokoda operators tell the story of the Kokoda Track, some more than others. We too have our own take on the Kokoda Campaign by bringing the stories of the struggle alive through the eyes of individual soldiers. This way our trekkers can empathize with what they endured. We also give you the Japanese perspective, often overlooked on the trail.
The local and natural history of the Kokoda Track is so often overlooked while trekking. We will learn what it is like to live on the Kokoda Track, from the people who know, our local team. Each evening they will explain topics as diverse as natural medicine, marriage rights, land ownership and more. These are fascinating topics and will give you a greater appreciation of your journey.
