PNG – KOKODA – NOW OPEN

Travel to PNG is now open.

It will be mandatory that all travellers to PNG will be required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

PNG may also require proof of a negative PCR test or RAT test prior to entry – we will provide advice prior to the trek.

Wild Trek Tours takes all safety precautions during each trek, including providing alcohol hand wash, and strict cleanliness provisions during the trek, including cooking and washing requirements. It is imperative that all trekkers adhere to the Covid safe guidelines outlined by the Tour Leader prior to each trek.

You will need a valid visa for entry into PNG. It is the responsibility of each trekker to obtain a valid visa.

Online visa applications can be done via the ICA website: www.ica.gov.pg

Please note online visas will incur a US$50 processing fee.

We have also revised ALL tour dates and now include a visit to the Beachheads at Buna – this is where our diggers finally defeated the Japanese forces in January 1943 after pursuing them from Kokoda. We lost more lives during the Beachhead campaigns of Gona, Buna and Sanananda than during the Kokoda campaign.

*Please note: Covid restrictions/regulations in PNG may result in a revised itinerary. Wild trek Tours reserves the right to alter the itinerary based on the best Health advice in both PNG and Australia.

SOUTH WEST CAPE TASMANIA – TEST WALK – JANUARY 2021

In late January, we did a test walk of the South West Cape of Tasmania. This walk starts from Melaleuca airport, the same as for the South Coast Track, however the walk veers off to the West, and does a long loop back to Melaleuca.

This was undoubtably a tough walk. It is for experienced hikers only, over rough and some unmarked terrain, scrub bashing, swimming a creek crossing, steep ascents, and steep descents, and some over very exposed terrain.

See the following links to follow the trek:
