Kokoda Track Update - 30 July 2015
Trek leader Justin, our head PNG guide Kila, along with all the staff and trekkers set off this morning from Owers' Corner. Crossing the Goldie River they will have a short day of trekking as they arrive to Goodwater with plenty of time for an afternoon swim.
Here at the pretty clearing at Goodwater they have made their camp for the night and have had a gentle half-day trek to ease them into the experience of trekking Kokoda. All are well and are loving their first night on the Kokoda Track.
