What's the Kokoda Track?
The Kokoda Track or Trail is a single-file foot thoroughfare that runs 96 kilometres overland (60 kilometres in a straight line.) The Track traverses the beautiful and rugged Owen Stanley Range in Papua New Guinea and was the location of the 1942 World War II battle between the Japanese and Allied – primarily Australian – forces in what was then the Australian territory of Papua.
Since then The Kokoda Track has held a special significance for Australians In defeating the Japanese forces, 624 Australians were killed and 1023 were wounded fighting on the Track and an additional 1261 Australians were killed with a staggering 2210 wounded in the final battles on the beaches at Buna, Gona and Sanananda, the very same beaches the Japanese forces landed on in July 1942 to commence their attack on Port Moresby.
