Kokoda / Bulldog Track / Black Cat Track – Special Trek


We are adding a special trek for 2023 that combines 3 iconic treks in one:

  • Kokoda
  • The Bulldog Track
  • The Black Cat Track

This will be a non-stop 26 day hike combining all 3 treks.

This combination has not been attempted before – you will be the first to do so!

This trek includes every highlight from all 3 treks – this history and magic of Kokoda, boat travel from Lakekamu, the wild Bulldog area, the even wilder Black Cat, rafting the Francisco River, and more.

We will be utilizing local porters from each area, with porters for Kokoda , porters for The Bulldog Track , and porters for The Black Cat Track.
