Description

The Battle of the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea holds a special place in Australia’s history and each year hundreds of Australians, young and old, make the pilgrimage along this primitive jungle track to honour the memory of the men who fought and died there in 1942 defending our country.

2017 marks the 75th anniversary of the horrific fighting on the Kokoda Trail.

For those interested in participating in one of these historic pilgrimages a free information night will be held on Thursday, 26th October at Paddy Pallin, 108 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley commencing at 6:00pm.

Hosting the night will be ADVENTURE KOKODA Head Guide, Major Chad Sherrin MM, a veteran of more than 80 crossings of the Kokoda Trail.

ADVENTURE KOKODA has 26 years’ experience, leading over 520 expeditions and is Kokoda’s most trusted operator offering the best value, most professional all-inclusive treks on the Kokoda Trail.

Chad says the Kokoda Trail is one of the great treks of the world. “Trekking through pristine rain forest and primitive native villages, it is a real wilderness adventure and to walk in the very footsteps of the men who fought and died there, and to hear their incredible story, is a life-changing experience.”

People need not be daunted by what they might have heard about the Kokoda Trail Chad said, “We have had people from 12 to 75 years complete the trek.”

“If you have harboured the thought of trekking the Kokoda Trail on your ‘bucket list’ this is the year to do it! Come along to the free information night and have all your questions answered.”
