We have had the pleasure of taking many private groups along the Kokoda Track. We have successfully arranged treks for schools, army cadet groups, fund raising teams and bushwalking clubs.

Back Track Adventures can provide a fun, safe, professionally operated trekking experience for your Group. We present a well trekked, well researched 9 day/8 night trekking itinerary.  Our Campaign Itinerary is 11 days from Australia with 9 days trekking on the Track.  Additional days can be booked in PNG after the conclusion of the trek.

If you are a group organiser and are not absolutely certain that you have the minimum numbers, we suggest that you consider booking into a scheduled team departure of your choice and advise all those who may be interested to consider joining you on those dates. We have found that small private groups have no problems successfully joining scheduled Team departures.

A few kind words from groups that have trekked with us:

Just a short “thank you” for the well organised Kokoda adventure. I appreciated all the info that you shared with us and your attention to all the details to make the trip work so well.

What an adventure!!   Sorry I did not get to talk much at the airport, I was keen to get home as you could imagine.  Gareth ( our trek leader) was great, I guess you could say we did have a time of our life!
L. G. Deputy Principal – Blackwater State High School, 2008
Your trek leader has exceptional people skills and is very entertaining. His sense of humour is fantastic and makes the trip more enjoyable. His explanations of the history is better than any book I have read. Not only did I enjoy the trek, I learnt so much and would recommend Back Track and your guide anytime. Well done!

Just a quick email to say thanks for organising a brilliant holiday! Especially at such short notice. Cath and I had a ball. The tour operator in nepal was fantastic as were the guides/porters. Nepal was the highlight by far..  Thanks again for all your assistance. Your service was far superior to that of which we had received from (Name)……. I was so impressed, last week I recommended a friend to use  your services – (name). Once again you guys were given very short notice but were able to organise a trip for him. He flew out last night very excited based on what I had told him about Nepal. I know he is in good hands with your travel agency. Have a great weekend.
