The Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway is a living memorial and a principal site of commemoration honouring all those who fought for Australia during World War II.
A principal focus is on the sacrifices made during key Papua New Guinea battles which took place in 1942-43 along the Kokoda Track, at Milne Bay on the south-eastern tip of Papua, and at Buna, Gona, and Sanananda on the northern coastline.
The Walkway covers more than 800 metres from Rhodes Station to Concord Hospital in Sydney’s inner-west and runs along the mangrove-studded shores of Brays Bay on the Parramatta River.
At the centrepiece are magnificent granite walls bearing photographic images of the Kokoda campaign. There are 22 audio-visual stations along the Walkway, each describing a significant place or military engagement. The Walkway has been planted with lush tropical vegetation simulating the conditions of The Kokoda Track.
C4C will be supporting the Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway by partnering with the Kokoda Memorial Trust to ensure the walkway and the activities of the Trust, such as education and information continue.
Our donations and volunteer activities will assist the Trust to continue its work in raising awareness of the Walkway and keeping the memory of those who fought for our freedom alive.
