Kokoda is one of the main reasons people travel to Papua New Guinea. Some people walk the Kokoda Track to honour relatives, others to learn more about war history, and some do it just for the physical challenge. Whatever the reason, there will be pain.
There will also be beauty, hope and camaraderie (to make it all worthwhile). While walking the Kokoda Track with Geckos, you’ll trek through terrain straight from the history books. From Deniki Village to Brigade Hill, Mission Ridge, Templeton’s Crossing and the Golden Staircase, you’ll hear about the iconic battles, stories and characters that have made the legend of Kokoda so poignant.
You’ll trudge through jungle, cross rivers and creeks, scale hills and ridges and rest up in villages populated by the descendants of esteemed Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels. You’ll trip, slip, slide, sweat, swear, laugh, bleed, bond and slap away bugs. And when it’s all done, you’ll also spend time resting your battered, blistered feet in Port Moresby.
In the years to come, the potent memory of Kokoda will stay with you long after your blisters have healed and your mozzie bites have faded. And that, friends, is a good feeling.
If your ideal getaway involves a jungle tree house a la Tarzan and Jane and snuggling up beside a young Leo Di Caprio on deserted beaches, then hop on over to South East Asia, stat.
Whether you wanna get your Indiana Jones on at ancient Angkor Wat, climb the epic Mount Kinabalu or drift across Burma’s Inle Lake, this magical region is packed to the brim with the best of the tropics.
So jump on a Geckos South East Asia tour and swim beneath waterfalls in Laos, crawl through Viet Cong tunnels, hang out at Halong Bay, surf perfect Balinese waves, gorge on tom yum in Thailand, and let the friendly folk, food and fun fill you up with the good holiday vibes.View all South East Asia trips
