General Douglas MacArthur October 3rd 1942, Papua New Guinea
A principal focus of the Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway is on the sacrifices made during key battles which took place in 1942-43 along the Kokoda Track and other locations in Papua New Guinea.
The Walkway is a peaceful and tranquil memorial featuring lush tropical vegetation, in stark contrast to the brutal and inhospitable conditions endured by those who fought in New Guinea. The Memorial Rose Garden features plaques dedicated to those who served.
Entry is free, and open to the public.
Individuals, community groups and schools are invited to visit the Walkway, which features the state-of-the-art Ralph Honner Kokoda Education Centre.
Visitors may also enjoy the covered function/BBQ facilities.
A digital honour roll of all Australians killed during the Kokoda campaign is projected onto the windows of the Education Centre.
