The Kokoda Trail: A History by Stuart Hawthorne

Introducing a newly released book by Stuart Hawthorne about the history of the Kokoda Trail : The Kokoda Trail is a remote jungle track in the old Australian Territory of Papua where Aussie Diggers and the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels battled desperately against Japanese invaders to save Australia in 1942. The Kokoda Trail campaign, fought out over six months and two days on a narrow front in appalling conditions, has become an honoured part of our Australian heritage.

But there is much more to the Kokoda Trail than this. Historian and adventurer Stuart Hawthorne looks back 130 years over the Trail’s captivating past. He traces the explorers, gold seekers, missionaries and colonial officials who pushed this tiny foot pad across unbelievably harsh country to set out a fascinating account of the fortunes of this 96.4 kilometre track. Did you know a surveyor set out the route of the first Kokoda Trail before Kokoda even existed? Or why it’s the Kokoda Trail, not Track? Or who gave the Trail’s ‘Golden Staircase’ its name?
