Our Spirit Adventures
Club Kokoda Community Walks - March 2018

Hello [Nickname or First Name],

We had such a fantastic response to the Club Kokoda Walks in February and encourage you to keep the Kokoda spirit alive by joining us on one or more the scheduled walks in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne during March.

It's a great opportunity to remember those of the past, explore new walks and network with like-minded people whilst keeping fit.

Newcomers are always welcome, so please extend this invitation to your family, friends.

You don't need to have walked the Kokoda Track to do any of these walks, but if you haven't already done the walk in PNG, you might find yourself thinking about joining one of our treks in the future.

The walks are community based, with no charge to participate, however we do ask for a gold coin donation that goes towards our education programmes in PNG. 

I hope you can join me and look forward to see you soon!

Professional Trekking Socks

Our Spirit trekking socks were researched, designed and created by Aidan Grimes after many adventures over 30 years frustrated by the lack of quality product looking after the most important part of trekking, your feet. These socks are Left/right specific with cleverly placed pads to help prevent blisters and chaffing. We also created them using the finest anti-biotic silver wool, which helps prevent “trench foot” in the tropics. We thoroughly recommend them for any bushwalking adventure you maybe undertaking.

"these socks are incredible, I have used them in Nepal and also the Kokoda track and they just fit perfectly, they also help prevent blisters by not moving around in your boots"

Dave, Experienced Adventurer, 2016

“ when you suggested these sock to me, I was a bit skeptical, but as a special forces soldier, often sent to far away places, I can say that these are now an important piece of kit to me and some of my mates, they are fantastic and really do what you say they do”

Mick, Australian Special Forces, 2015
