Bulldog Trek PNG


The Bulldog Track is one of the lesser known tracks in PNG, and is also historically called the Bulldog Wau road.

The track is in the Western End of the Owen Stanley Range.

After penetrating dense rain forest, it winds up jungle clad ridges for some 60km, climbing to over 3000m, before dropping down to Wau.

It is rugged and isolated, combining hot and humid days, and cold nights, and torrential rain.

In 1943, our Army engineers cut a road from Bulldog to Wau over 8 months as a supply line for battles in the Markham Valley and the northern coast of PNG. The road was finally completed in August 1943 when 2 jeeps travelled from Edie Creek to Bulldog.

You will see remnants of the road today as we trek along.

This trek is also sometimes combined with The Black Cat Track to finish at Salamaua.

This trek is an on-demand trek only, with a minimum of 6 trekkers, and is usually conducted from May to August.
