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.
