KOKODA TRACK UPDATE - 21 APRIL 2015
Today was another tough day for the group on the Kokoda Track. After a dawn service at the Brigade Hill battlefield they made their way down to the village of Efogi. Here they stopped for a well earned morning tea break and a chat with the locals.
This evening they have reached their campsite at Naduri. This is the half-way point on the Kokoda Track so they can rest easy tonight knowing that they have reached the half-way mark.
Kokoda Track Update - 20 April 2015
The group are at Brigade Hill tonight, near the site of one of the most horrific delaying battles the Australians were forced to fight while withdrawing over the Owen Stanley Range. Its been a tough day for the group today with heavy rains.
This evening in the campsite the rains continue to pour but everyone is keeping dry and warm around the campfire. Messages of encouragement are very appreciated especially after such a tough day.
Kokoda Track Update - 19 April 2015 PM
The group have reached their campsite at Agulogo. 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.
