Where an enduring legend of sacrifice and determination is honoured by modern day trekkers who face their own physical and mental challenges in undertaking this incredible journey.

Join us in venturing into the beautiful wilderness of Papua New Guinea so that we can learn about, remember and pay our respects to this amazing period in our nation’s history.

We also offer a “Non-Trekking” Kokoda and cultural tour to Papua New Guinea that allows you to experience traditional village customs along with visits to significant World War II battle-sites.



Based in Perth, Western Australia, Travis has been leading treks over the Kokoda Track for the past seven years. An extensive career in risk management has seen Travis serve as both a Tactical Response Group operator in the WA Police and as an Air Marshal with the Australian Federal Police. With this background comes a professional and thorough approach to your preparation and training to ensure a safe and successful undertaking of this incredible journey.


    Travis’ passion for the history of this campaign bridges generations, with both his grandfather and great uncle having served in PNG during WWII. His training and extensive experience in high-risk occupational health and safety situations means preparation and safety is of the highest possible standard.


    Monitored training is provided prior to departure. Physical preparation, mental wellbeing, appropriate equipment, nutrition, medical response, distances travelled and expected terrain are among the major considerations that go into your preparation.


    Kokoda Crossing’s PNG operations team is extremely well trained and professional. With their caring and guiding hand, not only will you be in awe of their abilities, but you will have a chance to learn about their history, culture and lifestyle in this incredible remote jungle wilderness.


    Kokoda Crossing have a security liaison team within Port Moresby that advise on any relevant security threats and provide support should it be required during the journey. Additionally, a doctor or paramedic is accessible throughout the expedition for your welfare.

    “Having previously served in the army myself and with a keen interest in Australian military history, trekking the Kokoda Track had been on my bucket list for years and I finally completed it with Trav and his team at Kokoda Crossing in October 2019. From the time I signed on, the admin, logistics and physical training support provided by Trav was excellent. It took any apprehension out of the individual planning and set a solid foundation for smooth sailing from start to finish. The hard work Trav has put in to making it the best experience possible really became apparent after arriving in country and starting trek. His hand picked porter team were outstanding  throughout and were tireless in taking great care of us. The depth of knowledge passed on by Trav along the trek was well researched and it is obvious he is passionate about passing on the history of the Kokoda campaign and telling the stories of the men who suffered, fought and died throughout it. Overall it was an amazing experience and I cannot recommend Trav and his team at Kokoda Crossing highly enough.”

    Great porters, guides, food preparation, camp locations, track knowledge and the best customer service. Loved every bit of the track and hats off to the great team.

    Highly recommend Travis & his team for this fantastic experience. Great knowledge, food, lifelong friends were made & loads of fun. A wonderful experience that I am going to remember forever. Would definitely do this again. Awesome!

    What an incredible experience I had the privilege of sharing with a group of sensational people in October 2018. Travis supported our group since the day we decided to do 'Kokoda'. In the lead up Travis took us on training treks, answered many a question, and continually encouraged the group if at any stage our confidence wavered heading into the unknown. The Kokoda Crossing team of porters were wonderful people whom helped all complete the track. They sang and laughed with us; and encouraged the team when needed. Travis, your knowledge of the Kokoda Campaign is outstanding. In particular hearing the words of our diggers via their diary entries and talking about the battles that occurred right where we were at the time ... it was such an incredibly emotional experience. I cannot fault Travis and his team on all that is required to organise and carry out such a trek. I will never forget this incredibly moving experience and our group will share a bond with Travis and his Kokoda Crossing team for the rest of our days.

    “Trekking the Kokoda Track was the most challenging and rewarding adventure that I have undertaken. Travis’ knowledge of the Track is exceptional as he takes you on a journey through time as relates so many stories of the Australian troops in PNG. Travis provides the perfect balance between fun, safety, control, compassion and support. Anyone thinking of trekking the Kokoda Track – this is the guy to do it with. He is a true legend.”

  • Simon Hamilton — April 2017

    It was an unforgettable experience that is difficult not to recount. Anzac Day at Isurava was special, then again every day was. Seems like yesterday and yet so far away. While getting fit and mentally prepared was hard work it paid off which made the track all the more enjoyable and memorable. Your preparation and the team you had was 1st rate. ET, Bewsy and Marcus were fantastic. Coupled with a motivated group this goes down as one of the most worth while things I have done in my life. Absolutely loved it. So glad Dan (guitar man) presented me with the chance to come along. Passing another team along the way all dressed in long pants and looking rather sombre it was obvious we were doing things a little different.
