    Across from the memorial lawns in Kokoda is a small museum offering further insight into the hardships and harsh realities that was the Kokoda Trail during World war 2. Well worth the visit.

    Normally transport to and from a trek is organised by the tour company. At the Kokoda end this is normally done by charter aircraft. There are however scheduled flights by Airlines PNG twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    Getting to the start of the trek is normally organised by tour companies. Owers Corner, at the southern end, is about 40 kms from Port Moresby but the road winds up a tortuous gradient through the Laloki River Gorge into the mountains. Our truck laboured most of the way up the steep incline, stopping at times to change down into first gear.

    An alternate, other than walking, is a PMV which will only get you to Sogeri.

    From the hills high up above kokoda the Airport stands out as either a welcoming site or one you've left from earlier that day. A small and nice airport with an assortment of items for sale by locals oftem around the back of the terminal building.

    All along the track villagers have set up stalls where they offer local fruits, mainly bananas, mandarins or passionfruit (perhaps others in season) and soft drinks. Cans of drinks go for around 5 to 7 kina. Take plenty of small change, usually the villagers don't have any which means the price is rounded off above.
