Kimberley's Story

What an adventure! Trekking Kokoda with a group of awesome people – all raising funds for beyondblue – was a truly incredible experience and one I will treasure forever.
A huge amount of respect for the incredible Back Track crew and team of porters who worked tirelessly to get us all safely over the Track. Sharing some of the hardest and most hilarious of times – the trek has resulted in many new friendships and a lifelong bond. Anzac Day 2016 will never be forgotten and I remain in total awe of the brave men who fought along the Track.
Jim from Back Track Adventures was the most knowledgeable of guides and it was an absolute privilege to have him lead our team. His 37th time trekking Kokoda – his genuine relationships and care for the locals was outstanding and he should be so proud of the positive contribution Back Track has made to many individuals and village communities in PNG.
If you’re planning on trekking Kokoda, please go with a respected and certified group such as Back Track Adventures. And please consider fundraising for a charity – it made the journey and the challenge all the more special.
