Ray's Story

It is hard to put into words the experience of walking the Kokoda track. It is tough, challenging and can be emotional, listening to the stories of the events of WW2 told with so much passion by Olly puts into perspective the difference between us with our state of the art boots, backpacks and walking poles, to those who fought and gave their lives for our country/freedom. Olly’s amazing knowledge of the different battles fought on the track helped us understand, even if only a small amount, what our diggers experienced. On the 2017 side of things, the scenery, the villages and the terrain has to be seen to be believed. Spending 10 days in such an amazing place with close family and friends was a once in a lifetime experience, the planning and organisation done by Adventure Bound Tours led by Olly on the track with his amazing band of PNG porters, guides and cooks (great food) and Billy back at home answering our many nervous pre-trek questions could not be faulted. If you have any thoughts of experiencing this amazing place, as they say, DON’T DREAM IT– DO IT. And I recommend doing it with the Adventure Bound Tours team.
