Papua New Guinea's 'backbone' - the Owen Stanley Range

Papua New Guinea's 'backbone' - the Owen Stanley Range

The Owen Stanley Range forms a spectacular topographic backbone that connects Port Moresby to the northern coast of Papua. The famous Kokoda track is actually the easiest of the passes that traverses the range and was used previously as a mail and supplies route before its centre stage role in World War II. The trek’s 93 kilometres, stretching from Kokoda to Owers’ Corner, is an arduous walk and you’ll encounter many ‘false peaks’ along the way, but the chance to ‘walk with history’ and experience the mountains’ rugged beauty has proved a rallying call for many Australian, and Japanese, adventurers.
