The Kokoda Trek is a 12 day life changing experience in PNG, commemorating the ANZAC Diggers. Experiencing the highs and lows of the treacherous Kokoda Track with a sense of courage, endurance and mateship without the ultimate sacrifice that our diggers made before us. Ending the trek, on ANZAC Day at the Bomana Cemetery paying tribute to those ANZAC Diggers who fought to save Australia from invasion in 1942.
Our Spirit Adventures has guided NSWPL ANZAC trekkers across the Kokoda Track over the past 13 years, since its creation in 2004 as a joint initiative between Our Spirit and the NSW Police Force in support of the NSW Police Legacy charity. Over the past 13 years, the original initiative has grown to include other frontline services including NSW Ambulance, NSW Fire Brigade, NT Police, NT Police Legacy, Australian Federal Police and AFP Legacy.
