The Kokoda Track was the scene of bitter fighting in 1942 when the Australian Army fought to defend Port Moresby from advancing Japanese forces. Today, walking that same track has become an iconic pilgrimage for those wanting to honour the ANZAC spirit.
Regarded as one of the world’s great treks, the Kokoda Track links the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea across 96 kilometres of rocky mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and pristine villages.
On this inspiring adventure, you will trek the track by day, open to the unforgiving and inspiring beauty of Papua New Guinea’s tropical rainforest. At night, you will stay in isolated camps, swapping stories with local Koiari and Orokaiva people and falling asleep to the nocturnal sounds of the jungle.
You will also have the very special opportunity to visit select Salvation Army programs in Port Moresby and witness firsthand the incredible difference The Salvation Army is making.
Not for the faint-hearted but certainly for the big-hearted, this really is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Best of all, you will be raising vital funds for The Salvation Army to help bring hope where it’s needed most.
Every dollar raised on the Kokoda Trek for Hope will help bring hope where it’s needed most in our community:
- $43 can help provide crisis accommodation for homeless women
- $90 can help support a family who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, with food and shelter
- $185 can help support an alternative program for disadvantaged youth
- $1000 can help support an after-school program in a disadvantaged community for a full year
A donation will also be made to the local Papua New Guinea Salvation Army programs you will have the opportunity to visit during your adventure.
