Successful Kokoda Trek July 2012

Sixteen Victorian University students, of similar age to the diggers sent to war in PNG, were amongst the July group who trekked the Owen Stanley Ranges from Kokoda to Ower's Corner with Aidan Grimes and for the first time, his 15 year old son, Sean.

Each Kokoda Track journey presents its own challenges and on this occasion it was determination of the group to help a grieving local family from Naduri to rebuild their home after it was destroyed by vandals only weeks after their teenage son Rex was killed in a mindless attack as he traveled to Port Moresby to collect his graduation gown.
