Well set up. I got there around 7am and the car park was packed.. not yet full but I was surprised. Quite a strenuous walk and everyone seemed to be in a hurry going up haha but it was really nice to see people of all ages and sizes going up! I went a tad further to one tree hill then looped back down via lyrebird track which is not as steep but definitely longer. Lots of places to sit and rest or read memorial plaques along the way. Cafe at the bottom and some bbq spots which is nice. Toilets at both ends too.

I love the 1000 steps memorial track so much I do it at least once a week, for my own health and fitness. Due to restrictions it is suggested on the track that you only go up the steps and then use the fitness track on your way down, (you can also use the fitness track to go up). Make sure you wear comfortable shoes like runners or hiking boots. Bring plenty of water, there are two tap spots, one down the bottom and one up the top. It’s suggested that the walk to the top will take about 40-45 minutes. But really it all depends on your fitness. There are dedicated resting spots, equiped with small benches and a map of the Kokoda track with some detailed information on it which is always worth a read. I recommend doing the track during the weekdays as there is more parking available at the track and less people walking, but if you choose to walk on the weekend, keep in mind of tour groups, larger families and extra parking around the corner as the normal car park will be full. Most importantly, just have fun! You’ll feel so accomplished once you’ve completed the walk.

Kokoda 1000 steps is a place for enjoying nature with family/ friends while burning your calories. Must come in the early morning, or you can’t get a parking spot. There’s a cafe and playground too.
