KOKODA TRACK UPDATE - 27 APRIL 2015 (Waynes group)
All have arrived to Efogi 1. They spent the afternoon playing touch football with the kids of Efogi. This was a reall treat for the kids as many of the kids at Efogi are orphans.
They also visited the only memorial to the Japanese that is on the Kokoda Track and heard some of the local stories about how that came about. All are well.

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.

Kokoda Track Training Session 10 May 2015
We will be doing a training walk on Sunday 10 May 2015. We will meet at 9.30 am at Launch Fresh at 2080 Warburton Highway Launching Place. 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.
