Kokoda Trail - Russell Eroro from the Oro Province

Meet Russ, or as his friends call him, Rusty! of Kokoda Trekking

Forty year old Russell Eroro from the Oro province has just completed trekking the renowned Kokoda Trek for the 287th time. A lot of you might know his brother John Derrick also from Kokoda who is also an experienced guide who has walked over 300 times.

For someone who started so young, that is an exceptional gain, and he is still looking forward to adding another hundred rounds to his trekking list.

Russell has provided services both as a local guide and porter for trekkers coming in from Australia and other countries for 12 untiring-years. Both him and his brother John Derrick and other long time walkers should receive medals for their services to tourism.

He started trekking in 1992, after he left his job as an apprentice in Bougainville - two years before the crisis started.

Editors Footnote : If you would like to join Russell Eroro (Kokoda Trekking Ltd) on a trek, please log onto our Kokoda website for further details :
