The Adventure

The Kokoda Trail or known to the diggers as the Kokoda Track, is more than a just bushwalk, it's a trekking adventure you'll never forget! The 96 kilometre Kokoda Track still bears its battle scars in the shape of scattered ammunition, guns, helmets and stirring campfire stories. Trekking the Original Kokoda War Track is a right of passage all Australians should aspire to achieve. There are steep rugged mountains, treacherous ridges, jungle terrain, unforgiving rivers and rainforests with giant trees that will tower over you and look down, mocking you, at every opportunity. Walk the Kokoda Track with Our Spirit on a PNG Adventure that embraces the local culture and experience nature at it's wildest - just as our diggers did in 1942.

Written By Aidan Grimes

 

In 1941/42 as part of aggressive Japanese expansionism in the Pacific region and under its “code of prosperity” Australian Mandated territory Port Moresby, became a strategic target. As a result of the Japanese threat, the 49th militia battalion from Queensland, who were ill equipped and trained, left Brisbane on 15th March 1941. They were transported from Australia to Port Moresby on the SS Katoomba and SS Zealandia ships.

The end of 1941 also saw the threat of war become greater and as a result, the Australian Government decided to bolster defenses in Moresby with the introduction of the 39th militia battalion from Victoria (raised in October 41) and the 53rd battalion from NSW (raised in November 41).

Both militia battalions as part of the 30th Brigade traveled on board the Aquitania from Sydney and arrived in Moresby on 3rd Jan 1942. Other Battalions that helped secure Moresby were the 13th field regiment and the 23rd heavy anti – aircraft battery.

The 8th division Australian Imperial Force (AIF) was dispatched to strategic Rabaul, Timor, Ambon and Singapore to protect airfields.

Assistance was also provided by the Papuan Infantry Battalion (PIB) which was made up of Papuan natives led by Australian officers. This was beneficial because it contained men with local knowledge of the tracks, territories and conditions. The New Guinea Volunteer Rifles were mostly made up of returned soldiers, non- natives, living in New Guinea.

The rapid rate of Japanese Military advancement following the bombing of the American Pacific Fleet at Pearl harbor on the 7th Dec 1941, the bombing and invasion of strategic Rabaul in Jan 1942, then the capitulation of Singapore in Feb 1942 and the annihilation of the 8th Division, sent a clear message that war would eventually reach mainland New Guinea and was seen as a threat to Australia’s Northern borders.

To further protect their expansionism and to prevent Allied intervention the Japanese bombed Darwin in Feb 1942, with over 250 casualties.

The Japanese Imperial headquarters was aware of the importance of Australia as a main allied base so it was decided to isolate Australia by capturing Port Moresby, occupying New Caledonia, Fiji and Samoa.

Australia was now vulnerable and this set the scene for the Kokoda campaign.

The Japanese initially planned to capture Port Moresby by a seaborne invasion. In early May 8th – 11th the Japanese planned attack on Port Moresby was foiled in the battle of the Coral Sea. A Japanese carrier fleet of 48 warships, including 3 Aircraft carriers, 13 cruisers, 32 destroyers headed for the Solomon Islands and Port Moresby. They were met by the US and Australian naval force comprising of 26 warships, aircraft carriers and cruisers in total 120 carrier aircraft. The Japanese lost 80 aircraft and 900 men. The allied force lost 66 aircraft and 545 men. The surviving Japanese troop ships retreated back to Rabaul. Other seaborne invasion attempts were further foiled culminating in the Battle of Midway June 4 -6th,1942 in which the Allies proved successful. This forced the Japanese Imperial army to adopt a different strategy to capture Port Moresby.

The only alternate strategy remaining was a little known native track (Kokoda Track) across the Owen Stanley Ranges that allowed access from the beach heads of Buna and Gona all the way to Port Moresby

.As a direct result of this, the Allied Commanders in Chief decided that it was strategically imperative to secure a forward air base so the Allies could attack the main Japanese stronghold at Rabaul. In order to protect an allied air base planned for the coastal areas of Dobodura. (near Popendetta) General Blamey instructed Morris on 29th June to secure the village of Kokoda. The Allied goal was to stop the Japanese reaching Port Moresby and to then push them back out to the Beach heads.

Subsequently, Captain Sam Templeton was ordered to lead his B Company 39th Battalion across the Kokoda Track to secure the village of Kokoda and its strategic airstrip. His untrained, badly equipped, inexperienced militia battalion were about to meet a far experienced and battle hardened force. The Japanese were numerically superior, well equipped and containing some of the best and most experienced jungle fighters, who were religiously indoctrinated and been part of the rapid Japanese success through the Pacific region. The Australian Militia would also encounter some of the most inhospitable terrain, inhabited by malarial and other tropical disease carrying insects, incessant heavy rainfalls, sleepless cold nights, humidity, lack of supplies and the constant threat of attack.

The Japanese landed at the beach head of Gona on July 21st 1942. They were first met by the forward elements of the Papuan Infantry Battalion (PIB) and the 39th Militia Battalion at the forward village of Awala. As a result of the Japanese landing, Lieutenant Colonel Owen was ordered to fly to Kokoda with reinforcements on the 23rd July and to command all PIB troops and his own 39th battalion to be called “Maroubra Force” and to prevent the Japanese advancement along the track.

After stubborn and dogged resistance the hopelessly outnumbered and surrounded Australian Militia troops, without Captain Templeton (who was presumed killed) retreated to Kokoda. At Kokoda the Militia managed to hold on before being overrun by intense concentrated Japanese attacks, forcing the Australians into a fighting withdrawal up the hill to the village of Deniki on July 29th.

In the process their Commanding Officer’ Owen was shot and killed. At this point, Militia reinforcements (the remainder of the 39th,) moved up the track from Port Moresby along with Major Cameron who assumed command.

With a reinforced battalion the defenders re-took Kokoda on Aug 8th. But under immense Japanese attack and dwindling ammunition and supplies managed to hold Kokoda for 1 day before withdrawing again.

After repeated attacks over days and increased pressure on Deniki the Japanese forced the Australians to withdraw to the village of Isurava where they dug in (Aug 14th). Further reinforcements were sent from Moresby in the form of the 53rd Militia to patrol the right flank on the Abuari Track, to prevent the Japanese outflanking the defensive force at Isurava on the main Kokoda Track. The Australian supply line was now a line of local Papuan carriers organized by local plantation owner, Bert Kienzle, who would carry supplies forward from Myola (an open dry lake bed situated at 2000m above sea level) to the battle front at Isurava, often extricating wounded soldiers along the way. Those supplies had been built up at Myola by air drop over the preceding days.

The highly experienced Lt Colonel Ralph Honner was also sent across the track to assume command of all “Maroubra Force” and managed to instill in the troops a greater Esprit de Corp. At this point in the Kokoda campaign the Japanese under the command of General Horii also continued to be reinforced efficiently due to their short supply route from the beach heads.

The battle hardened 2/14th Battalion AIF from Victoria and 2/16th Battalion AIF from Western Australia which had just returned from the Middle East were also sent across the track, with 2/14th expected to reach Isurava whilst the 2/16th were kept further back.

On August 26th the Japanese began a major offensive to capture Port Moresby, attacking Isurava. In an attempt to smash through the defending force they concentrated large numbers of troops with the support of mountain artillery against the exposed thin lines of Australian defensive positions.

As the young Militia troops of the 39th Battalion continued to stand firm against the aggressors, (at times outnumbered six to one) it was imperative that the 2/14th would arrive to reinforce them.

As the battle raged and casualties continued to rise, the Japanese continued to attack with higher intensity. The 53rd Militia under immense pressure on the Abuari Track, were forced into a withdrawal thereby exposing the 39th Battalion to a Japanese outflanking movement and certain annihilation.

On the afternoon of the 26th August the 2/14th Battalion arrived at Isurava and immediately assumed their positions in support of the Militia troops. They continued to hold their positions as the Japanese continued to attack with aggression in waves of as many as 200 soldiers.

Brigadier Arnold Potts now introduced the 2/16th Battalion to reinforce the Abuari Track pushing the Japanese back as far as the waterfall and thereby preventing the Japanese effecting an outflank.

On Aug 29th three days into the battle, Private Bruce Kingsbury of the 2/14th Battalion in the face of yet another Japanese attack counter attacked with his Bren gun and was killed in action – he was later awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery and he became the first VC winner on Australian soil.

The Japanese continued to attack the Australians positions, with far superior numbers forcing them out of Isurava (Aug 30th). The order was given to withdraw towards Alola and the long fighting withdrawal began as the troops moved through Eora Creek, Templeton’s Crossing and on towards the supply areas of Myola.

The retreating troops abandoned Myola damaging stores and poisoning food that the hungry Japanese would eventually eat causing major health problems. As the Australians withdrew to Effogi they fought aggressive rearguard actions causing many Japanese casualties. During this theatre of war and amidst the intensity of battle the Papuan native carriers continued to play a vital role. They continued to carry vital supplies for the troops, and carry those who were wounded or sick back across the Track to safety.

Withdrawing across the mountain ridges of the Owen Stanley Ranges the Australians, re-enforced by the fresh 2/27th Battalion from South Australia dug in at Mission Ridge and Brigade Hill, to once again await the inevitable Japanese onslaught. In the distance forward patrols could be heard engaging the Japanese with heavy gunfire as they amassed on the opposite mountains.

On Sept 8 the battle begun. The Japanese threw all their force at the Australians and over a few desperate days of sustained attacks managed to split the Australian defenders. This resulted in a large group of Australians with their wounded escaping through the jungle with little food for 17 days.

To once again avoid complete annihilation the Australians had no option but to withdraw through the villages of Menari to Nauro, followed by the long and intense climb up the Maguli range carrying the wounded towards Ioribaiwa Ridge (the second last ridge before Moresby). The Australian rear guard actions continued to harass and delay the Japanese advance.

By Sept 16th the Australians getting closer to Port Moresby and now with a shortened supply line withdrew from Ioribaiwa Ridge to Imita ridge (the last ridge before Moresby) where they were reinforced by the fresh 25th Brigade.

The Japanese dug in on the opposing ridge (Ioribaiwa) too sick and under nourished to maintain their advance. Elsewhere in the Pacific campaign the Allies had managed to advance in strategic areas such as Guadalcanal, and so, much needed reinforcements were not possible. They had been forced to fight hard and had run out of many supplies. As was the Australian supply line at Kokoda the Japanese supply line was now stretched and ineffective. The order was now given to withdraw back across the Kokoda Track.

On Sept 28th the re-enforced Australians mounted an attack to re-take Ioribaiwa Ridge with the 25th Brigade made up of the 2/25th, 2/31st and 2/33rd Battalions and found the Japanese gone when they got there. They had secretly withdrawn to return to their base at Buna. The lack of food, supplies and losses caused by the Australian fighting withdrawal, had proved too costly for the Japanese. Over the next few weeks the Australians continued to pursue the Japanese across the mountains with the 25th Brigade fighting the Japanese rearguard defending Templeton's Crossing, and a week of savage fighting ensued as the fresh Australians attacked the well - entrenched position.

Throughout October, the Japanese pursued now by the 16th Brigade made up of the 2/1st, 2/2nd and 2/3rd Battalions along with the 3rd Battalion, continued to retreat to Eora Creek and occupied another defensive position. Intensive fighting continued in the dark and narrow valley and ridges above Eora Creek and nine days of fighting began. The Japanese eventually pulled back and the Australians once more reached the village of Alola.

On Nov 2nd after months of intense fighting resulting in more than 600 Australians killed and over 1680 wounded the Australian flag was raised over Kokoda village. They pursued the Japanese overcoming another tough battleground at Oivi and Gorari until eventually they reached the Kumusi on Nov 18th, ending the battle for the Owen Stanley ranges in what was perhaps the most significant battle fought by Australians.

 

 

 

Trek Itinerary

The following 9 day trekking itinerary is recommended as a guide only. Track and weather conditions will inevitably determine the final journey of each trek. To maintain our unblemished safety record, all trekking is done during daylight hours only.  Trekking at night on cliff faces and across raging rivers increases the risk of injury and should only be attempted by experienced trekkers when absolutely necessary.  As many of our Aussie Diggers will attest, the journey across the Kokoda Track is one of respect to those who endured unthinkable conditions during the war in 1942.
