In 1942, the Kokoda Track area was the scene for bitter fighting as the Australian Army fought to defend Port Moresby from advancing Japanese forces. Today, walking the track has become a pilgrimage for many Australians.
Today, our fight is a different one and our battlefield much closer - in our neighborhood, in our street and in the homes of people we know and love. Today, we fight to end family violence.
This October we will tackle one of the world’s great treks - The Kokoda Track. As part of the journey through the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea across 96 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and unspoiled villages, the trek will raise vital funds to help end family violence.
Thank you for your overwhelming support and interest in joining the Kokoda Trek. We received an incredible amount of enquiries and have now filled all available places.
Stay tuned for our announcement on the team trekking Kokoda and on how you can support the trek to end violence.
For decades, Matthew 'Richo' Richardson inspired young footballers to follow their sporting dreams. Today, he will inspire our team in Kokoda as Trek Ambassador.
