Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This fantastic walkway is a great way to educate the kids in relation to one of the important Australian events of World War 2. Interpretative stations are positioned along the walk that provide both a commentary relative to the station. Its only a short walk, 800 metres and there is a cafe, kids playground and bathroom facilities as well as free parking. A great COVID-19 outdoor activity now we are starting to exit lockdown

The Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway is a perfect way to learn about an important part of the history of Australia. The path itself is relatively short, only about 800 metres, but its significance is huge. There are information stations along the way to tell you everything you would wish to know. It's about the part Australia played in World War II on the campaign against the Japanese in Papua New Guinea. It's a moving memorial commemorating this important event. Do the walk if you are able to. You don't have to park your car in a paying area near the hospital. You can park your car in a nearby street for free, a bit further away from the starting point and just walk down to the Track. On a sunny day you are bound to enjoy the walk.

This is a memorial walking track located in Concord Wes. It is a tribute to the bravery of Australian troops who fought through difficult conditions. Very pleasant and easy walk. A great activity for families and a great way to share in the history and significance of the Kokoda Track. Lovely rainforest and a boardwalk with a memorial centrepiece. You can walk right up to Concord Hospital to visit the rose garden.

We stopped here on our 65 mile drive from Katoomba back to Sydney targeting the Bray Bay Reserve for its free parking and rear trail head to this 1/2 mile long memorial. Built in 1996, it winds for 1/2 mile along the bay and is enveloped with vegetation, trees and bird life. Information plaques with pictures and sound are placed every ~200' explaining the Australian military campaign to slow down and remove the Japanese troops from Papua New Guinea. In the middle is an education center with clean restrooms and a very nice cafe with a breakfast and lunch menu.
At the bay access ramp is a memorial to the construction of ships for the WW II cause.
Access and egress is very easy on the same exit as the Sydney Olympic Park.

This is a really nice walk to take on any day of the week. It is a memorial to those Australians and others who participated in the New Guinea Campaign, during World War II. There is information on a number of aspects and you get to walk along a lovely stretch of river and bush and have a good time while at the same time keeping healthy!

I have walked down this track through the park to the markets at Concord Hospital. The gardens are lovely and it was also nice to read the plaques and information posted along the way. It is a great way to appreciate the people who did walk the Kokoda Track in WWII. Well done to the council for setting this up. I can recommend the walk for its peacefulness and its educational benefits.

Beautiful, shady, sealed walking track. Plenty of information plaques about the Kokoda Track. Lovely picnic areas, toilets, seats and an education centre.

This memorial track walkway is a beautiful spot to take a stroll and think about our soldiers during WW2 but unfortunately it is sadly in need of some maintenance as there are some fallen trees, burnt plants that need trimming, broken lights near waterfront, information stations not all working properly - I believe they receive funding but obviously nothing has been spent
Last time anything was done was the Anzac day before last when a load of mulch was dumped there to spread around just before the Anzac service

I love walking there daily but feel sad it is being neglected

The Kokoda Memorial Walkway was constructed to pay tribute to the Australian soldiers who battled at the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea during World War II.

While the walk is short, it features many electronic stations which voice activate as you approach. It’s a good way for people to learn the details of the many battles the soldiers fought.

The walkway also provides beautiful scenery. Small rainforest areas along the river, containing tropical vegetation and shrub. Perfect for a morning or afternoon walk.

We came across this walk as we walked from Homebush Bay to Cabarita. It is only an 800 meter section along the river but you will learn a great deal about Australia's role in the Second World War.
There are a number of electronic memorials which are automatically activated as you approach them. Wonderful technology and you will be inspired by the information they provide. Fascinating place and well worth a visit.
