Retrace the footsteps of our soldiers on this 96km trek. The Kokoda Trek links the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea through the most ruggesd terrain, tropical rainforests and villages.

In 1942 the Kokoda Trek was a scene of fighting between Australia and Japan during World War II. Today, the Kokoda Trek has become a pilgrimage for many Australians honoring the spirt of the ANZACS. By making this trek you will be tackling one of the great treks in the world!

With every step you take you will not only be creating memories but also supporting the Australian Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. This is truly, a once in a lifetime opportunity.


You will be helping us find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.1,800 Australians are diagnosed with dementia every week. Dementia is not a normal part of the aging process. However, more than 353,800 Australians are living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Memories are worth fighting for. By taking part in the Kokoda Trek for the Australian Alzheimer’s Research Foundation you will be raising funds to help research the causes, develop an early diagnosis, identify interventions and treatments for this disease.
