Kokoda Historical offers extra special ANZAC Day pilgrimages which include an extra day on your tour, which gives a total of 11 nights sleeping on the Kokoda Track. We spend 10 days trekking of which 2 of these days are half-days.
This trip is a special one taking in some extra places of interest that other tours groups very rarely see. We will make our way from Owers’ Corner in time to reach Isurava on ANZAC eve, where we will be met by the ladies from Kokoda Village who will treat us to a banquet at our campsite.
Waking up on the Isurava Battlefield we will attend the official ANZAC Day Dawn Service overlooking the beautiful Yodda Valley. Where we will pay tribute to the soldiers who served and to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in order to defend Australia.
Trekkers also have the option to continue on to the Northern Beachheads of Gona, Buna and Sanananda, an important part of the Kokoda story seldom seen by most trekkers. Places are limited to a maximum of 12 trekkers.
