Owen Turner - Kokoda Trek Leader

National Park Ranger, Owen Turner is a highly qualified Kokoda and Black Cat Trek Leader and has led more than 28 treks with Our Spirit. 

Owen’s position as Ranger (covering Blue Mountains, Hunter Ranges and Northern NSW Coast regions) over the past 29 years has given him extensive experience in natural area management, wildlife interpretation and naturalist skills. 

Combined with his active interest and passion for PNG and Kokoda military campaigns (particularly in the Wewak area where his father fought with the 2/3rd Bn), Owen is a crucial member of the Our Spirit team and a popular leader.  

He is a keen adventurer, favouring remote mountainous bushwalks, caving, climbing and wild river kayaking and in recent years cycling. Owen also holds current “Wilderness First Aid” certification and is well versed in remote emergency and safety procedures but maintains our 100% safety record.
