Education Centre


Educating present and future generations about the service and sacrifice of those who served.

A fundamental objective of the Walkway is to educate present and future generations about the service and sacrifice of Australian and Allied personnel who served in World War Two, particularly during the Kokoda campaign in Papua New Guinea.


Schools Visitation Program

The Walkway achieves our educational objectives through a comprehensive school visitation program where students tour the Walkway’s 22 stations  and gain an understanding of the battles and conditions along the Track.

Secondary students can experience the immersive VR program to experience the Track, while also hearing from veterans recounting their stories.


Digital Honour Roll & Walkway Stations

A digital honour roll listing the names of all Australians killed during the campaign is projected onto the windows of the Education Centre, visible from the outside. Meantime, the names of those Australians killed at each location of the 22 Stations along the Walkway will gradually be added to the respective Station webpages.


‘Beyond the Battlefield’ Military History Presentations

To enhance our educational program, the ‘Beyond the Battlefield’ program at the Education Centre will continue in 2024.  Friends of Kokoda members will be admitted free; all others $5.00.



Resources are also available to learn more of the Papua New Guinea and Kokoda Track campaigns, including oral histories from Kokoda veterans and other educational resources.

You may wish to conduct further reading or research about the Kokoda campaign, key campaigns in the South West Pacific region, and more generally World War Two through external websites.


The Walkway’s success is dependent on the goodwill and services of many volunteers. You may wish to support the Walkway by becoming a volunteer, joining the Friends of Kokoda or by donating
