I will only "Adventure Travel" with the "No Roads" tour company. (I must first advise that I am friends with one of the Kokoda tour guides and have travelled to the Komodo Islands with the owner). I went back to Kokoda in November 2014 with a group of nurses as part of their "No Roads to Health" (NR2H) program. At... More

Kokoda Trek has been on my list for a while and turning 63 in Dec 2014 I decided that this was the year. Escape Trekking Adventures was recommended to me by a friend that had done this in August 2013 - well I took the plunge and sooo glad I did - Escape Trekking Adventures lived up to all that... More

I did the Kokoda Trail with Adventure Kokoda, with Charlie Lynn as the Trek Leader. Many emotions were felt as we walked across the Kokoda Trail, making it especially difficult to grasp onto specifics. However, the Kokoda Trail has changed me. Listening to Charlie Lynn's fascinating account of the history and to visualise it as I walked the trail opened... More

As a teenager it was awesome to see first hand the conditions in which our diggers fought. Kokoda is a tiresome yet extremely rewarding adventure. If you're up for the challenge, it will be something that you gain a lot from. The more you prepare, the less you'll struggle and aerobic fitness is crucial. For anyone wanting to get the... More

In short, this was a very tough trek, but so rewarding, particularly in hindsight. It's 11 days in total, with 9 days on the Track itself and one day at either end in Port Moresby. I did the trek through BackTrack Adventures in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. Kokoda is their speciality, having undertaken these trips for 30 years (since 1984), and... More

The Kokoda Track is AMAZING but oh so very hard. I went to PNG for 12 days and spent 9 of them on the track. It is the most gruelling thing I have ever done. The guides and Porters from Getaway Trekking were fantastic, couldn't have done it without those Buna boys.

Well, the day finally came on Sept 25th when our group found ourselves landing at the grassed Kokoda airstrip to start the 10day trek to Owers Corner. After lots of preparation and organising the required items it was about to begin. The preparation was made simple with lots of correspondence from Adventure Kokoda advising on what to take and how... More

I highly recommend Adventure Kokoda for their professionalism and their historical knowledge of the Trail. Chad was a great leader and I personally enjoyed the poems he shared with us and his singing of ' O Danny Boy'. Adventure Kokoda also show the deepest respect and care for the PNG carriers and porters which was very moving. I also will... More

Thanks to Escape Trekking Adventures we had a wonderful trip back to PNG. Last year Sene and I did the Kokoda Track from South to North with Investa Treks. This year we completed the northern beaches section as well as walking the Kokoda Track in the opposite direction. This year we saw many additional places that were missed last time... More

I had been wanting to do the Kokoda track for a long time as my Grandfather had fought there during World War two, when I finally decided that this was the year I started researching companies to go with, I came across Escape Trekking Adventures and I was impressed by the information on the website and the range of treks...
