I had an incredible experience! We are privileged to have Charlie Lynn as our trek leader. He has dedicated himself to help the locals and is very passionate of his craft. I appreciate all the lessons I learned from him and the discipline I've acquired during the pilgrimage.Nothing worth it comes easy. You have to prepare for the worst and train hard. The harder you train the quicker you can recover and you'll appreciate the beauty of trail and your labour. You will create great bond with your fellow co-trekkers and especially the porters. You get to be grateful of the smallest things around you and hopefully take it with you when you get back.-Paolo Santiago

A group of 12 of us trekked the trail for 8 days commencing 29th July, 2018. It was absolutely amazing. Adventure Kokoda was our choice of tour operator who were absolutely fantastic. From my initial phone call to Tracie, until boarding the flight back to Sydney, they were so easy and accomodating to deal with.

I used this trek to fundaraise for the babies in the NICU at the Royal Hospital for Women, Randwick. Nothing was a problem for AK and together we raised $160 000.00. Just incredible!

Most importantly, they look after the local carriers very well. Our trek leader was Aussie Dave Sherry, who was a wealth of information and an alround good bloke.

It was a one the hardest things that I have ever done, but definitely one of the most rewarding events of my life.

If you’re going to do it, go with Adventure Kokoda!

I had the most incredible experience trekking the Kokoda trail, trek leader Charlie was fantastic, I learnt a lot about WW2 and I learnt a great deal about myself in the process. I can't rate their professionalism, knowledge or enthusiasm highly enough.

In September 2017 my brother and I visited PNG with the help of Kokoda Trail Expeditions. Our uncle John Campbell was killed in December 1942, near the village of Sanananda. For many years we had talked about visiting his grave in Bomana War Cemetery. After several months of research I was able to put together a picture of where our uncle had been during his time in PNG in 1942. I contacted John at Kokoda Trail Expeditions to ask if he could put together an itinerary for us, so that we could follow in our uncle's footsteps. Thanks to John and his team, we were able to visit our uncle's grave, and deliver a letter  that our mother had written to him 75 years earlier. John and the team were supportive and respectful during this very emotional visit. We also drove to Ower's Corner, through areas that our uncle had patrolled. The following day we flew over the Range to Poppondetta, seeing what had been Dobodura airfield where our uncle probably landed when his battalion was sent to fight, and the area where they would have marched. We visited 3 villages, and by talking to the locals and providing landmark descriptions found in the War Diaries, we were able to walk into the jungle to the approximate area where the fighting took place and where our uncle was killed. A highlight for us was visiting the village of Sanananda, and finding a plaque there which honoured the sacrifice made by the men of the 55/53rd.  It was important to us to visit the places that had significance to us, and John understood this and planned our trip accordingly. His knowledge of the area and it's history helped to make it a very special visit, and we felt well looked after with regard to transfers and meals. Our trip to Bomana and Sanananda is something my brother and I will always remember.
