Nick's Story

I would like to thank all at Getaway Trekking and Adventure for the professional manner they went around organising, me and all of my fellow trekkers in making this a most memorable trip. From first contact through to final day departure at Port Moresby all of the arrangements were as expected, and to all concerned Deb, Sue, Russell, Wayne and Mark (my Adelaide contact and trainer) including my Fuzzy Wuzzy helper Roymurry. and the entire porter team, could not have done enough to help me get through this “Bucket List” experience. Being one of two elderly trekkers in the group and choosing not to use a personal carrier, Wayne (trek leader) had my back the entire time ensuring that everyday I was managing the trek well, with a reassuring word and encouragement. Wayne and Russell’s historical knowledge of the Kokoda campaign was exceptional giving me a healthy understanding of the true efforts of the Aussie campaign in New Guinea. I do not have any problems recommending Getaway Trekking, in fact I wear my Getaway top at the front bar of my local hotel which generates a lot of interest and conversations. Cheers.
