Experience the spirit of the ANZAC while hiking along this challenging but historically enlightening trail.
This 90-kilometre trek, run by Peregrine Adventures for private groups only, follows the trail used during World War II, taking in mountain passes, snaking along ridges and descending into deep gullies. Along the way you will visit small, isolated villages, war sites, ancient forests and extinct volcanic craters. Peregrine works with a local co-operative to ensure villages and communities benefit directly from visitors walking the Kokoda Track. The co-operative involves 11 villages along the trail and our porters and guides come from these villages – direct descendants of the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels’ who assisted Australian troops in World War II.
