Kokoda was never on my bucket list but when the opportunity came to go with a group of people from Mates in Construction to support and raise awareness and funds for suicide prevention in the industry I jumped at it. It was one of the most challenging things I have ever done, physically, mentally and emotionally but I have come... More

Firstly it must be said that the team at Getaway Trekking ran this trip as a Cancer fundraiser. If anybody has spent time in PNG, you will understand what a logistical challenge it can be. To run this event for the benefit of the wider community is outstanding. Now to the trip... Getaway Trekking provided an amazing Kokoda Track experience.... More

My wife and I treked the kokoda trail in Aug 2014 with five other Australians plus our Australian lead guide from Escape Trekking Adventures. I agree with the recent comments made by people who have also used Escape Trekking including the professionalism of Shane and the lead guide Nathaniel. I will add several additional general comments about our experience. I... More

We just got back 2 days ago from an amazing experience. Back track allow 9 days for the trek against most who seem to do 8. I travelled with my brother, sister and a friend. We were all at different levels of fitness when we 1st booked 9 months ago but we trained fairly hard and it paid off. First... More

I did the Kokoda Trail with Escape Trekking Adventures in August 2014 and found it to be one of the most challenging but rewarding travel experiences of my life. The track is physically tough, but the professionalism of the organisers and porter crew is amazing, making is entirely worthwhile. Apes, our local tour guide, set a pace that suited the... More

I recently returned from an 8 Day Kokoda Trek with Escape Trekking Adventures on the 5th of August and can recommend the trip to anyone who might be considering it. Physically it was a challenging experience but not as tough as I was expecting. The team from Escape Trekking Adventures helped me with encouragement and advice with all aspects of... More

I just returned from an 8 day trek with Getaway Trekking. Our group was 11 plus the tour guide and 17 porters. I wouldn't want to trek with any more than this as it would be very difficult to stay together. We had no real stragglers nor any serious injuries so we weren't ever held up waiting. We were also...

Our trek with Kokoda Historical, the 2014 Harry Bould Memorial Walk, is named after Harry Bould, a member of the 39th Battalion who went missing, presumed killed, on the 29 July 1942. Our group of 13 from all parts of Australia (11 guys, 2 girls), was a mixture of young and old, ages ranging from 16 to 70. Unsure of... More
