Outstanding, challenging but very rewarding experience

I recently hiked the Kokoda Trail (August 2015). It was challenging, rewarding, very basic in terms of amenities, and luxuries but a very moving experience. I opted for the 11 day trek which included a day's travel from Brisbane, Australia and the return day from Port Moresby back to Brisbane. That also included an overnight stay in Port Moresby on...

I'm a 43 yo man and was fortunate enough to have done this with my 73 yo Dad and some friends and their sons. Bloody hard work but we'd prepared well enough to have enjoyed the experience. I think just about anyone sufficiently motivated to complete it can. Difference is the amount of preparation will determine the level of comfort... More

During the month of August, myself and a mate joined a fantastic group of people and experienced the trip and challenge of a lifetime. Shane Goodwin from Escape Trekking Adventures provided us all with a truly professional and fulfilling journey. While living up to its extremely tough name, I found the the actual track itself, very achievable, having followed Shane's... More

The trek was more than I ever expected it to be. Chad Sherrin was our guide and the way he bought the story to life was beyond anything I had expected. The physical demands were not as bad as I thought they might be (we did have great weather), which allowed us to really enjoy the history of the Diggers.... More

As part of the kokoda youth leadership challenge 2015 we had Dave from adventure kokoda take us on this pilgrimage of a lifetime. By no means is this a simple walk to add to your achievement list, this is a walk to honour those who have walked before us. It is something to be forever proud of and those who... More

I have just returned from the recent Kokoda trip lead by Shane Goodwin from Escape Trekking Adventures. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Shane and his team are consummate professionals and the experience they deliver is without fault. Shane's philosophy of respect & support for the local community, safety & fun for participants as well historical insight gives, in... More

I have just returned from and 11 day trek of Kokoda (Escape Trekking Adventurss) that was lead by Shane (Aussie) and Soddy (Local). We spent the first 2 nights at Buna which was simply amazing and the best way to get to know the crew. Travelling alone as a female I felt safe and believe it's the best way to... More

This was the most amazing experience of my life. The company i went with is Adventure Kokoda with Dave Sherry as our leader. He was very imformative with the different battlesites and the history. He also organised little treats along the way and the villagers made us feel welcome. The carriers we had were so loving and caring and always... More

We booked our Trek through Get away trekking & Adventures, there was not enough communication with us & found we had missed half the information. Pre Trek meeting we discovered they had forgotten hired bedding. Once the trek commenced we discovered our boots had inflexible soles & lacked traction which was discussed with the Team leaders without any advice to... More
