After missing another Kokoda in 2020 I wanted to see what local treks were around and the Aussie Camino came up. I want to do a trek to get out and about and the piligram side of things was really a factor in why I signed up. But I learned so much history about an important part of Australia back in the day and Australia only Saint. The piligram side of the trek actually made it and gave it some purpose. Was amazing to see a part of Australia I hadn't been to yet, from the cliff tops, to the beaches and then heading inland thru SA across back roads, farm land, up a volcano, thru some amazing wee towns. This is a trek is a MUST to see a wonderful part of australia, meet the locals and learn the history of our only saint.

used Getaway trekking to follow in my fathers footsteps when he fought here in 1942 with the 2/27th it was a tough walk even though i had trained and built up my stamina with hill climbing and gym Getaway was very professional and our trek master Laurie was fantastic we has a memorial at Bomara Cemetery that was very moving and tales of what the soldiers went through along the way.. another service at Isurava memorial battlefield with the carriers joining in with their national anthem was a highlight for us all trekking through villages and having great food along the track made this experience one that we will never forget reaching the Kokoda arch was such a thrill and release of satisfaction and achievement and walking in my Fathers boots more so now knowing the struggle they went through well done Getaway trekking and it didn't rain so that made it better

Was absolutely the best thing I’ve ever done. Definitely needed to train more. It was physically, mentally and emotionally the most challenging thing I’ve ever done. The trek was so well organised and I met an amazing group of people who will be friends for life. Getaway organised absolutely everything, the porters were life savers. The trek leaders Loz and Jules made the trip unforgettable.

Recommended experience for all ages, but do the training, it’s not a walk in the park but it is achievable. The whole experience was everything and more than I expected, we had sunshine, humidity and rain so walked in all conditions, walking in the mud gave me a greater appreciation of what the solders must have gone through ( on a much smaller scale), If your doubting yourselves don’t just do it.

Have always wanted to do it and I did it. What an incredible journey, just couldn't get enough. Getaway Trekking and their support staff (The Boys) as their referred to made it just so much better, they couldn't do enough for you or anyone else. It was a very personal and humbling experience and very proud to say I've done it. My motto for the trip was "They did it for us, I did it for them & I did it for myself". If ever you have had the thought of doing it, book it through Getaway Trekking.
