Kokoda Trail Expeditions


Safe, Affordable & Eco-Friendly Kokoda Trail Treks in Papua New Guinea

There are few places on the planet as lush, beautiful and wild as the jungles of Papua New Guinea. The Kokoda Trail is a true trekking adventure that winds along vine-choked trails, past raging rivers and through rugged and isolated terrain in the footsteps of Australian military history. Join us on a 9 or 10 day trek with a small or a big group of fellow adventurers led by our expert local or Australian historian guides.

We offer a wide variety of treks and tours with options suitable for all ages, interest and activity levels ranging from tours of the beachheads of Buna, Sanananda and Gona to a complete 13 day trek and tour of the entire battle trail from Owers Corner to Kokoda...truly an epic adventure! Visit our Treks and Tours section for detailed descriptions and more information.

Kokoda Trail treks that honour the past while protecting the future

Kokoda Trail

The Kokoda Trail winds through the wild and untamed wilderness that a small group of young, inexperienced and ill-equipped Australian soldiers bravely and valiantly fought to defend against the advance of the Japanese Army during the Kokoda Campaign of World War II. Every Kokoda Trail trek that we lead is in honour of not only these brave soldiers but the local “Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels” whose support and knowledge was critical for victory. Our treks and tours directly benefit local communities and we operate under strict eco-sensitive trekking guidelines to maintain the environment of this amazing area for future generations. We’re proud partners of the The Kids Cancer Project, supporting kids with cancer, and source our local employees and fresh fruits and vegetables from villages along the trail route. Our expert guides have successfully led celebrities including Russell Crowe, Bridie Carter and Rowan Atkinson on military history treks and client safety is our number one priority. We have an extensive risk management program in place and are a fully insured tour operator registered in both Australia and Papua New Guinea. The Kokoda Trail is more than just a challenging trek through incredible wilderness; it’s literally a walk in history. Discover the incredible natural wilderness of Papua New Guinea and the fascinating history of the Kokoda Trail on a trek with Kokoda Trail Expeditions.

Not a Fan of Trekking? Well, There’s Much More to Our Tours than That!

If you are not too wild about the idea of trekking the Kokoda Trail, you can still join us on our tours of Papua New Guinea. Places like Buna, Gona, Sanananda, Rabaul, Tufi and Milne Bay are not just rich in history, but they also offer many other fun activities apart from trekking.

Rabaul                                                                                          

For history-lovers, Rabaul offers attractions including Bitapaka War Cemetery, Karavia Japanese barge tunnels, Montevideo Maru memorial, the volcanic calderas of Matupit and Vulcan, and 2/22nd Battalion memorials. The latter were built in the memory of an Australian Garrison Lark Force and its troops who were overwhelmed and captured in Rabaul by Japanese in WW2. A few of them escaped while others were massacred at Tol Plantation. Another large number of these POWs were drowned when the Montevideo Maru was sunk by US submarines. Today, Rabaul remembers these brave soldiers and preserves their history. Click here to book.

Tufi

If you aren’t interested in trekking or military history, our tours have quite a lot more to offer. Located on the north coast of Papua New Guinea, Tufi is an ideal destination for diving and fishing. Overlooking the Solomon Sea and exquisite tropical creeks and inlets, the area is a paradise for divers and fishermen alike.

For tourists, there's plenty to see and do in Tufi, including scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, traditional outrigger canoe safaris, bird-watching, fishing and village stays. Adding to its charm is its rich cultural heritage and historical background. Tufi is also home to World War II wrecks of PT boats, a Black Jack B17 and Pistoff B25 Mitchell bombers which are open for exploration for avid and experienced divers. Click here to book.

Milne Bay

Located towards the eastern end of Papua New Guinea is the maritime province of Milne Bay where a decisive WW2 battle took place around the same time the Kokoda campaign was underway. The area has a rich marine biodiversity as well as military and cultural history. It was in Milne Bay that Australian and Allied troops first defeated the invading Japanese on land. On visiting Milne Bay, you will learn about its role during the war and get the chance to take part in several other fun activities. You will visit villages and skull caves, and scuba dive and fish sunken barrier reefs stretching many nautical miles along its southern coast. Expect to see Spanish mackerel, yellow-fin tuna, giant trevally, wahoo and barracudas. Click here to book.

So, even if you don’t feel like trekking the beautiful Kokoda Trail, you can still become a part of our tours and have the time of your life in beautiful Papua New Guinea. To book a tour visit our Booking Page
