Honour the spirit of the ANZAC's during this pilgrimage to Kokoda.

This will be a special trip as Col Reynolds, The Kids’ Cancer Project founder, will trek with you in celebration of his 80th birthday. You're in safe hands! Col completed the trail in 2016 and has just had a knee reconstruction. Join him as he takes the challenge to do the track back to back. 

The Kokoda Track is a lasting reminder of the Australian Army's heroic battles during 1942. In extraordinary conditions, they defended Port Moresby from the advancing forces of the Japanese. You’ll trek across the geographical heart of Papua New Guinea through pristine jungles learning of all the battles that took place in this sacred place. Experience traditional villages and hike with the descendants of the famous Fuzzy Wuzzy angels who continue the tradition of caring for you in every aspect. This trip will leave you with an incredible sense of accomplishment and lifelong memories.

Every step will support childhood cancer research with The Kids' Cancer Project.

"The trail truly reflected the inscription etched in the memorial at the cemetery, ‘ENDURANCE, MATESHIP, COURAGE and SACRIFICE’. I have made lifelong friends and am immensely proud to say that I have walked the Kokoda for kids and their families as they fight childhood cancer."
Fiona
Nursing Unit Manager and successful Kokoda Trail trekker for The Kids’ Cancer Project (aged 54).
