My father, sister and I recently completed the Kokoda Trail. It was 7 days of Mud, Rain, Humidity and Heat... well worth it though! We started from Kokoda and finished at Owen's Corner, so if you're deciding on which end to start, it is shorter to do it the way we went. As a first time hiker, it took a... More

Robert T. Always interested in the Kokoda story, I finally had the opportunity to walk the Kokoda trek in August 2013. Following recommendations from friends and family who had trekked with Escape Trekking Adventures (ETA) I sign up and started my 12 weeks training. I read heavily into the war stories and records to fully understand the history of the... More

I recently trekked with Escape Trekking Adventures in August last year. The trip was an Australian led expedition which I highly recommend as the guide coordinates the entire trip for you. Prior to the trip my mate Robert and I contacted the 39th battalion association and had an add placed in their Good Guts newspaper to the families of the... More

8 of us Concord Old Boys joined 8 others and went with Chad Sherrin of Adventure Kokoda and 39 local carriers and we had a challenging but very rewarding trek along the trail from Ower's Corner to Kokoda. We took Adventure Kokoda's 10 day premium military history option, which was fantastic.

Just trekked from Kokoda to Owers with Kokoda Spirit with my youngest son. The trek was great and the porters were amazing. perhaps the greatest challenge of my life. everyone should try this. Test yourself and discover a world where life is simple and happiness is not measured by belongings or wealth. Found some new friends who shared the experience... More

I trekked with Adventure Kokoda from Kokoda to Owers corner. Chad (With help from Bernie) were great trek leaders with an incredible depth of knowledge of the battle and genuine personal interest in the campaign and its veterans. The daily battle briefings great and made the trek experience richer. They had a great knowledge of the trail and the local... More

I trekked with Adventure Kokoda form Ower's corner to Kokoda - what an amazing life experience. The 1st couple of days were spent 'acclimatising' & once we had a 'feel' for our packs, etc, there was no stopping us. It is just incredible to consider what the Diggers were going through in 1942 - they had somebody shooting at them... More

A life changing emotional journey through some amazing scenery. We did the trek as part of a fundraiser with Back Track, our guide Martin was knowledgeable and fun. I did the trek as a physical challenge but the military history is inspiring and moving to say the least. Being reduced to tears like a baby is not my standard but... More

I walked Kokoda from North to South with Escape Trekking Adventures. We started as a collection of individuals, some had known each other before, all from different backgrounds and locations. Over the next 9 days of hiking, swapping stories, sharing meals, participating in history nature and military insights we became a group of friends and have remained in touch since... More
