Trek the Kokoda Track with Femili PNG

3 September 2018 to 14 September 2018

In 1942, the Kokoda Track area was the scene for bitter fighting. Today, walking the track has become a pilgrimage for many Australians, and those honouring the ANZAC spirit and our shared history with PNG.

One of the world’s greatest treks, the Kokoda Track links the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea across 96 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and unspoiled villages.

As part of this incredible adventure, you will trek the track by day, open to the harsh and inspiring beauty of Papua New Guinea’s tropical rainforest. At night you will stay in secluded camps, sharing stories with locals and falling asleep to the nocturnal sounds of the jungle. You will also take part in a special project visit, where you can visit Femili PNG’s acclaimed case management centre and see firsthand the life-changing work your funds make possible.

Not for the faint-hearted, this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure on which, with every step you take, you will raise vital funds to help support survivors of family and sexual violence to access the critical services they need.
