The Walkway

Memorial Centrepiece

Our beautiful Memorial Centrepiece is at the centre of the Walkway, and features five iconic images taken from the Kokoda campaign.

Memorial Rose Garden

Opposite Concord Hospital, the Walkway commences at the beautiful Memorial Rose Garden, featuring over 500 plaques, primarily dedicated to those who served in WW2 and the Kokoda campaign (but other conflicts are also represented).

Information Stations

There are 22 Stations along the 800m Walkway, explaining the military engagements or localities along the Kokoda Track, Milne Bay, and the northern coastal regions of Papua New Guinea. Each has text and photographs highlighting the battles and conditions. Each webpage also contains extra images not on the actual Station.

DOWNLOAD MAP FOR SELF-GUIDED TOUR

A virtual tour is available by accessing each Station online. You may also research the individual locations by undertaking further reading about the Papua New Guinea/Kokoda campaign.

The Walkway continues to enhance your experience, in person and online with the following projects:

  1. On each Station webpage, hear the audio for the text on the actual Station.
  2. At the Walkway, scan the QR code on each Station to direct you to that Station webpage, where you can read the text, plus view extra images not on the actual Station.
  3. Lists of Australians killed at each Station location (if applicable) are gradually being added. Lists have been completed for: Sanananda,  Buna, The Coast Watchers  (all nationality fatalities, civilian and military), Oivi, Deniki, Efogi, Ioribaiwa, Templeton’s Crossing, Eora Creek and Gorari.
