Trek Kokoda & help end family violence

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. 

Join us in October 2018 as we tackle one of the world’s great treks - The Kokoda Track. As you journey through the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea across 96 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and unspoiled villages, your trek can raise vital funds to help end family violence.

As part of this incredible adventure, you will trek the track by day, open to the harsh and inspiring beauty of Papua New Guinea’s tropical rainforest. At night you will stay in secluded camps, sharing stories with local Koiari and Orokaiva people and listening to the nocturnal sounds of the jungle.

Not for the faint-hearted, this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.


Harness the support of one of AFL's greatest 

For decades, Matthew 'Richo' Richardson inspired young footballers to follow their sporting dreams. Today, he will inspire you as our Trek Ambassador.

Are you ready to join Richo and Windermere and trek to end family violence?
