Stuart's Story

I have just completed an amazing trek of Kokoda with Escape Trekking Adventures – a highly professional group. The owners of ETA – Shane and Tina were readily available to assist with questions before I left and their training plan ensured I was thoroughly prepared. While on the Kokoda Track, our trek leader Vanessa was excellent with strong knowledge of the Track, history and locals.

Before setting off on the 9 day trek, we started with a couple of days at the Northern Beaches of Buna and Gona and this really added to the overall experience.

The support team of cooks and porters were amazing. Great support and we were fueled with everything from “Kokoda” sushi, “Kokoda” pasties, yummy doughnuts, chocolate cake, pastas, rice dinners and so much more! Our music man added an extra layer to the overall experience and hearing the boys singing from the top of a couple of the steep climbs helped us get through.

I feel that my decision to use ETA was definitely the right one and I would strongly recommend them to anyone considering embarking on the Kokoda Trek!. A smaller operator focusing on a quality experience with strong relationships with the local villages.
