Lark Force Wilderness Trek Featured in Great Walks Magazine
Kokoda Historical's Lark Force Wilderness trek has been featured in the special Anzac centenary edition of Great Walks-Australia's Bushwalking Magazine. Many people who have already fallen in love with PNG through trekking the Kokoda Track may be interested in the other great walks that PNG has on offer.
The Lark Force Wilderness trek is happening this coming August, we will visit Rabaul in East New Britain and then trek through Bainings mountain range and on to Tol plantation. This seldom trekked part of our wartime history guarantees to be an adventure equal to Kokoda. The trek will also be an emotional pilgrimage as we remember those members of Lark Force that died in defence of Australia.

Its at the corner of Warburton Highway and Gembrook Road (about 6 kms from Woori Yallock). From there we’ll go to Warburton about another 20 minutes. We should be able to start walking at 10.00 am.
Donna Buang has its own climate so it’s important to take a rain jacket/warm top and dry clothes for return home.
It will take 4-5 hours.
