Helen's Story

Seven years ago I visited Gallipoli and the experience had a profound effect on me. It touched me more than I could have imagined. Over the past four years I have been doing a number of endurance walks for charity including Oxfam twice. These experiences planted the seed of walking the Kokoda Trail. After a lot of research and educating myself about the history of the Kokoda campaign, I enlisted my husband and nine other friends and booked our trek with 100% Kokoda. It was important to me to walk the trail and experience the history through the eyes of a soldier. It is the only war our Australian soldiers have fought to protect our home and what they endured and sacrificed was beyond heroic…words cannot describe the respect I have for these amazing Australians! I believe walking the Kokoda Trail is something every Australian needs to experience and I would not look past 100% Kokoda to lead you on this life changing journey!
