Hike the Kokoda Track | Kokoda Trail Tours | Wild Trek Tours

Kokoda Trail Tours – 9 Days

The Kokoda Track is a world-class tropical hiking trail that takes hikers through lush jungle terrain, moss coated forests and immaculate waterways, while also being connected to a critical moment in Australia’s involvement in World War II.

Wild Trek Tours is one of the best Kokoda Track companies around, offering thoroughly planned Kokoda Track tours that operate during the best time to trek Kokoda. We also ensure our treks are completely comprehensive and awe-inspiring.

We trek during the dry season, from May to October. When you make an enquiry, please specify your preferred month of travel. Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions, travel in 2021 will be August to October only.

Come by yourself, or with a mate or relative. We welcome small groups and sporting clubs as well. Group size is limited to 6-12 trekkers, plus a local guide, porters and cooks.

Trekkers will carry a day pack only, and porters will carry your full backpack. We actively encourage the use of porters in order to support the local economy. The porters will set up camp each night and prepare all meals. They will also support you along the Kokoda Track when the going gets tough.

You will be challenged on terrain that is steep and rugged, and likely to be wet and muddy in places. You will be rewarded with a fantastic experience of a lifetime, with spectacular views, beautiful villages and friendly local people along the way, coupled with a deeper understanding of what our forebearers endured during the wartime Kokoda campaign.

You need to arrange transport from your home State to Cairns, arriving by mid-afternoon.
Briefing by tour leader followed by dinner at the hotel.
