Kokoda Trips

Trek the Kokoda Trail with South Sea Horizons.

The Kokoda Trail has been a place of pilgrimage for Australians, and others, for many decades. A place of ANZAC reverence and of personal challenge. South Sea Horizons has been leading groups along the Kokoda Track since 2008 with an exceptional trek completion rate of 99%. And there are many reasons that help us deliver such a high success rate. These include:

  • We are PNG owned-and-operated. This land is our home and our passion.
  • We only practise responsible-tourism that gives back to the communities we interact with
  • We only employ local Papua New Guineans as porters, historians and cooks. Indigenous to this land who know it better than any other.
  • Our GM – Alan Manning – splits his time between PNG and Australia. He has a great empathy and understanding of what ‘Aussies’ are looking for from their Kokoda Trail experience.
  • We provide a personal porter for each trekker. That’s right. A ratio of 1:1!
  • We are an equal-opportunity employer across all positions within our
    organisation.
  • Our local porters include direct descendants of the last remaining ‘Fuzzy-Wuzzy-Angels’.

A brief history of the Kokoda Trail.

The Kokoda track is one of the many walking tracks in Papua New Guinea that existed long before the Europeans discovered this part of the world. It was used for trade and cultural interaction between tribes and is still used for these purposes to this day. During the course of World War II, the Japanese decided to use this trail as means of ground attack against the Australians in Port Moresby. The idea was to take Port Moresby and use it as a base from which to stage a direct assault on Australia.

One end of the track lies in the north of the country at a village called Kokoda. It winds up and down over the rugged Owen Stanley ranges and finishes in the south at Ower’s Corner nearby Port Moresby. Both Kokoda and the Northern coastal plains were the scene of violent close contact jungle warfare as the Australians retreated in the face of the Japanese onslaught. The Japanese were finally stopped at Imita Gap as they had extended their supply lines too far in the rugged terrain and began to die of starvation. The Australians then chased them all the way back to the northern coastline.

Today the remains of the war lie strewn in the jungle and the track has reverted to quiet solitude, disturbed only by occasional trekking group. There are several villages along its length inhabited by peace-loving, hospitable locals. These are the descendants of the people who became known during the war as the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels’ because of their selflessness in helping wounded Australian soldiers.

The remainder of the trek to Templeton’s Crossing takes roughly five hours. This leg of the walk passes through lush rainforest and past creeks and rivers that feed directly out of mountain springs. Follow the hilly trail to Iora Creek, where you’ll enjoy a short break and can freshen up in the river.

It takes a further three hours to reach Templeton’s Crossing. Upon arrival, settle into our cooperative guesthouse and perhaps swim in the fast-flowing creek. Around the guesthouse, iron rods symbolise the sites where fallen soldiers once lay.

The summit is 2,200-metres above sea level and provides some spectacular views across the Owen Stanley Ranges. The track towards Digger’s Camp can be challenging, especially in wet conditions. It’s not too steep, but can be muddy and slippery. Be sure to stay close to your personal porter and follow his every step.

At Digger’s Camp stay at the local village campsite, set among lush rainforest. It can get cold at night so be sure to bring base layers. After checking in, take a walk to Myola where Australian troops once dropped in supplies during the war. This is an expanse of grassland scored with winding creeks.

Day 6 – Efogi

Today’s hike takes about six hours. Head towards the northern face of Mt Bellamy, which offers impressive views. The trek to Naduri is a long and steady descent through a lot of open Kunai grassland.

After a short break at Naduri, walk the steep and slippery trail towards Efogi I. Enjoy a well-deserved break on arrival. The villagers sell a range of local fruits and foods, so be sure to carry small change with you to purchase organically grown produce. Continue on the one-hour descent to Efogi II, which is short but exhausting. It will be the middle of the day and there isn’t a lot of canopy protection, so make sure you keep hydrated and protected from the sun.

Upon arrival into Efogi II, be greeted by local villagers and welcomed by the Siosi family, the owners of the cooperative guesthouse you’ll stay in. Efogi II is the largest of the Koiari villages along the trail with an estimated population of 400-500 people.

The walk to Brigade Hill from Efogi II takes 1-2 hours. Glorious views can be enjoyed from the top. On a clear day, you can see right across to Mount Victoria, the highest mountain in the region.

After a long break head down the back of Mission Ridge, which is a steep and sometimes slippery path. From there it’s a 40-minute climb to Menari village. In Menari, be welcomed by the local villagers, including descendents of the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels – local villagers who assisted the allied soldiers as they defended the territory against the Japanese.

After a short break, tackle the steep and sometimes slippery trail down the back of the ridge for about an hour. From here enter Nauro Valley and cross the Brown River.

Today is a relatively short walk. The trail can be swampy and unpleasant during the rains, but for most trekkers it should be a comfortable walk. In the evening, stay at a guesthouse in Old Nauro. Bathe in a stream before enjoying a campfire.

In the morning, expect wet boots from the outset as you traverse Uaule Creek’s 14 crossings. Continue with a trek up the back of Imita Ridge for about one-and-a-half hours. From here, trek down what was once known as the Golden Staircase. This was built by Australian troops during the war to transport artillery and supplies from Port Moresby.

Today is a long day of trekking and a good example of why trekkers must be mentally and physically prepared for this arduous walk. From Goodwater, push on for close to three hours towards Goldie River before climbing the final hill of the trek to Owers’ Corner. You have walked the Kokoda Track!

Be met at Owers’ Corner and transferred back to Port Moresby. Along the way visit Bomana War Cemetery, where 3,600 Australian soldiers were laid to rest at the end of World War II.

Day 2 - Uale

Today we set forth towards Ower’s Corner, the base of the supply route for the Australian forces during the Kokoda Track campaign. Along the way we visit Bomana War Cemetery, which is the final resting place for 3600 Australia soldiers and largest such gravesite in Papua New Guinea. Upon departing the cemetery, we follow winding roads to Sogeri, passing Crystal Falls enroute. This road was the built by engineers in the Australian armed forces during the Second World War to provide suitable supply routes up to the holding line at Owers’ Corner. Do look out for the majestic waterfalls on our drive. Upon reaching Sogeri, we go on to a dirt road for the final hour’s drive to Owers’ Corner.

After a quick briefing session where we are paired up with our personal porter, we continue trekking to our first campsite at Uale. Immediately we notice the toughness of the Kokoda Track as we first descend down from Owers’ Corner to the mighty Goldie River. The crossing at the river will involve stripping off to bare minimums and crossing in waist-high water. Our trek leader and personal porters will take good care of us during the crossing. Today you will have 14 creek crossings before you reach campsite. From Goldie River we continue to Uale where we set up for the night.

Day 3 - Nauro

We depart Ualeand climb up to Ioribaiwa Ridge. At Ioribaiwa we are treated to magnificent views of the Owen Stanley Range and back towards Imita Ridge. Ioribaiwawas where the Japanese troops were turned back. With Port Moresby in our sights from the ridge, we can truly appreciate just how close the Japanese soldiers got to reaching their goal. We then make our way to Nauro. The stage of the trek is two tough climbs before a very steep descent to Ofi Creek, where we enjoy another short pit stop in the valley between Ioribaiwa and Maguli Ridge. We continue to Jap’s Ladder, where we enjoy lunch. It was here that the Japanese troops built their own version of the Golden Staircase (hence the name Jap’s Ladder), which was used to move supplies and artillery during their advance towards Ioribaiwa.

We have our final trek to the top of Maguli Ridge and then down towards Nauro village. The descent down to Nauro can be very difficult and steep. When wet this can become particularly hazardous, so be sure to keep an eye out and listen attentively to our personal porter who will instruct each of us on where is best to place our next steps. Tonight’s campsite is at Nauro village (Old Nauro) in a beautiful setting inside Nauro Valley at the bottom of Maguli Ridge. The guest house here is owned by one of our cooperative partners and is set beside a fast-flowing freshwater creek. It’s a great place to relax after a long day.

Day 4 – Menari

Today we trek towards Menari village and set forth through the swampy marshlands of Nauro Valley. This is a nice flat plain to trek and a perfect way to kick-start the morning. We pass through a campsite known as Agu-logo and then cross the mighty Brown River. Once again this can sometimes be a hazardous crossing, but our porters will again be around to help guide us across the river. Upon reaching the base of Menari Ridge we commence a very steep climb up towards Menari Ridge peak. This is a very tough and challenging climb.

We enjoy a short break at the top of the ridge where we are treated to spectacular views back across towards Nauro (Maguli Ridge) and in north-easterly direction we can see the famous ridge at Brigade Hill. We then commence the steep and slippery descent down to Menari village.

When arriving into Menari village we are warmly welcomed by friendly villagers. We arrive around midday and have the remainder of the afternoon to relax in this tranquil location. The afternoon can be spent bathing and washing our clothes in this icy cold mountain spring river.

Accommodation
  • Village Hut (1 night)
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
Special Information

The total distance trekked today is 15kms which will take roughly 7 hours.

Day 5 – Efogi

Today we trek to the village of Efogi. The morning commences with a descent out of Menari village, passing the airstrip and following the steep descent to the valley that separates Menari from Brigade Hill and Mission Ridge, where there’s a beautiful icy cold river that is a great fill up point for our water bottles. After a quick refill we commence our climb up to Brigade Hill. Upon reaching the top our trek leader and local historian will share with us the story about the battle of Brigade Hill and how the Australian troops had been engulfed or ambushed by the fast-approaching Japanese troops. Over 75 Australian soldiers fell at Brigade Hill and this is commemorated by a plaque which sits at the top of the hill.

Glorious views from the top of Brigade Hill can be enjoyed and on a clear day we are able to see across to Mount Victoria, which is the highest mountain in the region. To the south-east we can see Nauro Village and Magulu Ridge at the top. After a long break at Brigade Hill, we then continue our walk along Mission Ridge and then commence our descent down to Efogi village, where we are treated to exceptional panoramic views up to Mount Bellamyas it towers into the sky in the background. One can imagine the sight of 20,000 Japanese troops trudging down the mountain towards Kagi village – a scene was captured on film by an Australian soldier at the time. When the Australians were occupying Mission Ridge, they looked back towards Mount Bellamy and saw what seemed to be a sea of fireflies lighting the hillside from Kagi up to Mount Bellamy. It was later realised that this sea of light were not fireflies, but in fact lantern lights belonging to the fast-advancing Japanese troops. We have a quick break at Efogi II village before continuing the walk up towards Efogi I. This involves a climb up to the top which can be a very difficult climb due to the exposure of the track to the sun. After this arduous climb we have completed another amazing day of trekking.

Day 6 – Diggers Camp

Today we set off to Digger’s camp. We first walk towards Naduri village for the first section of the day’s trek. The climb up to Naduri is a steep and difficult. We then set off for our initial climb up Mount Bellamy, This climb provides some fantastic views across the Owen Stanley Ranges and on a clear day we’re able to look back as far as Imita Ridge. From here it’s a relatively flat path to Digger’s Camp.

We get settled into the campsite by mid morning and then, after lunch, take a walk down to Myola Plains. Myola is a beautiful flat plain of grassland with little creeks set inside the remains of what looks like an extinct volcanic caldera. During the war, Australian troops had utilised Myola’s airstrip to drop in supplies. When making their advance to Port Moresby the Japanese completely missed Myola, which probably played a significant role in the ultimate chain of events. There were once many aircraft remains scattered around Myola, but since the war local villagers have salvaged much of what was left for scrap metal. After a few hours spent walking around Myola we return back to Digger’s Camp. Located in the highlands of the Owen Stanley Ranges, Digger’s Camp can be bitingly cold at nights, so be sure to rug up well for tonight’s sleep.

Day 7 – Templeton’s Crossing II

This morning we set off from Digger’s Camp to conquer Mount Bellamy. Our walk starts off following a relatively flat and swampy plain to 1900 Crossing. From 1900 Crossing we continue with a steep climb which takes us up to the summit of Mount Bellamy. This can at times be a very difficult path to follow, especially after rain which turns the path into a deep quagmire (sometimes knee-high in mud!). Upon reaching the top we continue to Kokoda Gapand on to Templeton’s Crossing I, where we enjoy lunch.

Following lunch we commence another climb along the ridge that hugs Iora Creek Valley to reach our campsite for the night at Templeton’s Crossing II. This campsite owner is another cooperative partner. During the war campaign, the Australian supply and storage facility was based at Templeton’s Crossing. It was also the burial ground for Australian soldiers killed in the Battle of Iora Creek. Located near our cooperative guest house this burial ground is marked by iron rods that symbolised each individual soldier or body found at the site. The bodies were removed at the end of the war and relocated to Bomana War Cemetery

Day 8 – Isurava

We commence the day’s trek at sunrise after spending a night soothed by the sounds of the mighty Iora Creek. Our goal today is to reach Isurava village which is around 9 hours away from Templeton’s Crossing II. The first leg of the trek takes us to Iora Creek where major battles took place between the advancing Japanese soldiers and the retreating Australian 39th Battalion and 2/14th Unit. The Aussies had split into two retreating parties after Isurava was claimed by the Japanese. Both parties later converged on Iora Creek, leading to a massive gun battle between the two forces. Over 200 Australian bodies were found at Iora Creek and later relocated to Templeton’s Crossing II. These were the bodies that were later relocated to Bomana War Cemetery in Port Moresby.

From Iora Creek we follow a long and windy path floating up and down various valleys and small hills. This section of the trek passes through some interesting rainforests and jungle with many little creeks and waterways – a result of water cascading from the top of the mountain and down the cliffs. There is one final water crossing before we start our ascent up to Alola village – a steep climb. As we head into Alola we are greeted by a magnificent view looking down the Kokoda Valley from this little mountain village. After Alola village we set off for Isurava battlefield which is about an hour and a half from Alola.

The walk this morning is tough to start, with as we commence by climbing through choko fields before following the ridge of the mountain that later leads down to the Isurava Memorial. This memorial was built by the Australian Federal Government and is maintained by the Australian War Graves Department. The four pillars encapsulate the battle along the Kokoda Track with the four words – ‘Courage, Sacrifice, Mateship and Endurance’. To the south-eastern end of the four pillars lies Kingsbury’s Rock. This battle is attributed to the heroics of Private Kingsbury, a real estate agent from Victoria who was enlisted to fight in New Guinea with the 2/14th Infantry Battalion. His heroics at Isurava earned him a Victoria Cross when he was said to have held off an onslaught of invading Japanese soldiers with his Bren gun. This event was enough to give the retreating Australian troops enough time to escape from total annihilation and the opportunity for the reinforcement troops in the shape of the fit and athletic 2/14th AIF unit to arrive. The unfortunate death of Private Kingsbury occurred on the rock when he was struck in the head by a Japanese sniper. His story is one of the many legends that we will embrace throughout our journey along the Kokoda Track. After this site we make our way to Isurava village. Today we have ‘broken the back’ of the Kokoda Track.

Day 9 – Kokoda

After our overnight stay in Isurava we begin our final day of trekking down to Kokoda Station. First we must make our way to Deniki village. Deniki sits at 900metres above sea level and overlooks the whole of Kokoda Valley, providing for a truly exceptional view as we trek down to Kokoda Station, where we are accommodated at our cooperative guest house.

Close to the guest house is a lovely river where we are able to relax and swim after settling in. A five-minute stroll from the guest house is the Kokoda Memorial and memorial plaque. There are local shops nearby that sell food and beverages, as this is generally a good ‘water hole’ for Kokoda locals and most trekkers who have just completed the trek. Today is a day of rest and a good time to celebrate amongst our fellow trekkers the achievement of successfully completing the Kokoda Track!!!
