Kokoda Walk, Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, Victoria, Australia

Kokoda Memorial Walk (1000 Steps)

March your way up the steep, 1000 step-climb of the Kokoda Walk and experience a tiny sense of the exhaustion felt by the Australian soldiers following the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea in World War II.

Observe the plaques depicting the lives of those who fought and died on the trail during the Kokoda campaign in 1942.

Along the way see tree ferns, and manna gum and blackwood towards the top of the hill. This walk is not recommended for those with medical conditions that restrict physical activity.
