ANZAC Day 2015
When the former Prime Minister the Hon. Paul Keating visited Kokoda in 1992, he fell to his knees and kissed the ground.
"If the Australian Nation was founded at Gallipoli, then its depth and soul were confirmed in its defence at Kokoda"
As we commemorate the centenary of the Gallipoli landing and the founding of the ANZAC legend, join us at the Isurava Memorial for the Official ANZAC Day Dawn Service in 2015.

A Life Enriching Experience - Chris Hennessy
David, Thank-you so much for providing me with the opportunity to walk the Kokoda Track. It has been a life enriching experience.
It was extra special being able to do it with my son.
I now have a smidgen of insight into the conditions our troops fought under.
When we walked out onto Myola 1 looking just as it did in Damien Parer's film all those years ago the hairs on my neck stood on end. The only thing missing was the biscuit bomber.
I wish you and the Kokoda Historical team in both Australia and PNG every success for the future.
Chris Hennessy, Oct 2013
