About the Kokoda Trek

About the Trek

Act for Kids invites you to join us for the trip of a lifetime, trekking the Kokoda Track through the PNG Jungle all the while making an incredible difference to the lives of abused and neglected children. The Kokoda Trek for Kids is more than just a tough trek in a jungle environment, it’s an emotional, physical and sometimes spiritual journey through the jungle that served as the backdrop for a ferocious battle in 1942 where Australian Diggers and Papuan Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels stood shoulder to shoulder to face the might of the Japanese Imperial Army. Our Trek Leaders Glen and Alyssa Azar will walk you through this incredible and spine tingling history, recounting many stories of heroism, courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice. Embrace the history, change children’s futures.

About the Cause

The proceeds from our Trek for Kids goes back to Act for Kids to provide free life-changing therapy to abused and neglected children across Australia. Act for Kids has been delivering therapy and support services to kids and families for almost thirty years and now has over 22 centres nationally. All of their services are provided free of charge and they rely heavily on fundraising and donations to continue to make a difference.
