Kokoda 75th Anniversary – without the trekking!

This unique tour gives you the opportunity to visit the hallowed ground of the Kokoda Track, without the need to join a gruelling 10-day trek. Beginning in Port Moresby, we travel to Owers’ Corner (the start of the track) by four-wheel drive. We then fly to the end of the track at Kokoda village, and explore the battlefields in the area. On November 3 we will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the recapture of Kokoda, with a ceremonial flag-raising on the same spot Australian troops raised their flag in 1942. The tour concludes with a visit to the beachhead battlefields at Buna, Gona and Sanananda. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit key sites on the Kokoda Track, and to pay your respects to the 2000 Australians who were killed or wounded in this pivotal WWII campaign.

Highlights include:

  • Key WWII sites in Port Moresby and welcome dinner
  • Full day touring of Kokoda Track and Port Moresby
  • Flight over Kokoda and sightseeing Kokoda Plateau
  • 75th anniversary commemorative service and village of Gona
  • Buna, Sanananda battlefield, and traditional ‘sing-sing’
  • Port Moresby Nature Park and group farewell dinner
