The Kokoda Track Campaign was part of the Pacific Theatre of the Second World War and was critical to the defense of Australia

The battle was a series of fierce engagements fought between Japanese and Allied Forces from July 1942 to January 1943. The Allied contingent consisted mainly of Australians who defended what was then the Australian Territory of Papua.

The Kokoda Track crosses some of the most regged and isolated terrain in the world. It's a single file track, passable only by foot, starting outside Port Moresby and running through the Owen Stanley Ranges to Kokoda and the coastal lowlands beyond

The troops endured nightmare conditions, torrential rain, leeches, malaria, daytime humidity, freezing temperatures at night and horrific hand to hand fighting
