Trekking Kokoda - A Powerful Experience

The Back Track Team would love to have you join us on the Track. The 2014 trekking season commenced on April 25 (Anzac Day) with our 4 Anzac Day Teams commemorating the event on the summit battlefield of Brigade Hill, in the middle of the 96 kilometre Kokoda Track. The most remote Anzac Day ceremonies held anywhere in the world. Truly, an unforgettable experience that you can be part of in 2015.

Our Kokoda Track trek is a journey into Australia's wartime history. It is as important a part of Australian history as Gallipoli. Our trek itinerary combines the complete Kokoda war time story, along the exact wartime Kokoda Track, with a world class, challenging, jungle bushwalking experience and inspiring cultural interaction with our trek crew and villagers we meet along the Track. We believe it is a pilgrimage every Australian should seriously consider.

Back Track’s 9 walking days, sensible itinerary is the best itinerary to fully appreciate the Kokoda Experience.

Back Track trekkers are everyday Australians, just like you, just like us. Trekkers join us to trek the Track for a variety of reasons. Many are seeking an understanding of the Kokoda campaign, while others have had family who had fought and some had died in PNG during the war. Some are seeking an exhilarating physical and mental challenge, while others are striving to achieve a goal, a personal challenge, a tick-off from a life list of challenges and achievements. Whatever the reason, trekking the Kokoda Track is a powerful experience awaiting anyone prepared to take it on.

Best time to do Kokoda?

It is possible to trek the Kokoda Track all year round. The best period to trek is during the cooler, dryer, mid year months from May to October. The trekking season commences on Anzac Day (25 April) and continues though to mid November. Outside this period the chance of rain increases dramatically, temperatures and humidity are high and trail conditions can be rough and very muddy.

Health and safety along the Kokoda Track
