Bailey's Story

My story begins 6 months before embarking on the experience of a lifetime. After being generously picked on behalf of my school to venture the Kokoda Trek, I straight away got involved in any training available. Throughout the 6am starts twice a week, for almost 6 months, my overall fitness was now upon the appropriate level and the day finally came.
Upon arrival in PNG my first thought was the intense humidity and heat in the sun. However, when flying into Kokoda airfield to begin my unbelievable adventure, it was clear that the heat and humidity wasn’t going away any time soon.
Our expedition was 7 nights and was absolutely the hardest but most rewarding thing I have ever achieved, or will ever achieve. During the trek we had dawn services, detours to significant sites and surprising guests like the Australian Air Force, which landed a helicopter at Isurava Village. The terrain was challenging and unforgiving, but through courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice we conquered the Kokoda Track. Truly Unbelievable!
