Community Engagement

Groups and individuals representing sporting, cultural, recreational, corporate or other associations are most welcome at the Walkway, and to pay their respects during their visit.

The Walkway is proud to engage with many community, sporting, cultural and other groups and individuals.

The Walkway is proud to regularly engage with, and receive visits from, a range of community, sporting and other groups. These visits fulfil many purposes for both the Walkway and the groups:

  • to learn of the significance and history of the Walkway.
  • to understand the Kokoda campaign, and the proud military service of Australians in general.
  • to engage with, and to strengthen ties with, local communities and groups.
  • to encourage social inclusion and healthy lifestyles through visiting the Walkway’s grounds and using its facilities.

Please contact us to arrange a visit from your club or association.


The Walkway has strong connections with sporting groups, such as the NSW Swifts netball team, and the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs NRL club.

While at the Walkway, representatives will usually lay a wreath at our Memorial Centrepiece, and are encouraged to attend our commemorative events.


The Walkway is always proud to welcome cultural organisations, forging strong and ongoing links between organisations with mutual interests.

Recent visits have included delegations from the PNG Government, resulting in commitments for various individuals and groups to attend future commemorative events.


The Walkway always welcomes groups representing the corporate sector. These include offers of assistance to maintain the Walkway grounds through corporate volunteering sessions.

While at the Walkway, groups also learn about the Kokoda campaign, and how the Walkway contributes to educating the current generation about the significance of the Kokoda campaign, and more generally about Australia’s proud tradition of military service and sacrifice.


The Walkway welcomes many recreational groups and others, who are keen to learn more about the crucial Kokoda campaign. Groups such as Probus, aged care communities and others regularly visit as a means of encouraging their members to connect with others, and to also learn about our proud military history.

Groups are encouraged to lay a wreath during their visit, and may also make use of our covered function area. The Walkway charges fees for group visits, and further details about visits and fees are here.


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
