13. Memorials, Museums, Historic Sites and War Relics:
The Authority should maintain memorials, and where appropriate, pay a caretaker to keep the memorial and surrounding grounds neat and tidy. In the case of Kokoda Memorial Park, the Authority should get title to the land or an assignment from the present department for the Authority to maintain the park and administer the Museum, thereby improving the display of war relics. The small house adjoining the Museum could become the Authority’s Kokoda office, although there are other office opportunities through the Kokoda LLG and the Department of Environment and Conservation (formerly National Parks & Wildlife).

The Isurava Memorial Park can be maintained by the Authority, with assignment and possible part funding by the Australian War Graves Commission. A similar situation would possibly apply with the Ower’s Corner memorial.

Fees should not be charged by landowners for visitors to visit memorials. KTA should pay a landowner or contractor to maintain the memorial and surrounding grounds.

Interested landowners can open up safe war relic sites, eco-tourism attractions, maintain the track to them and charge visitors an entrance fee. Village museums are also privately owned and owners can charge an admittance fee to visitors.

It is proposed that KTA identify historic war sites with plaques or signboards, have track arrows and distances between villages and points of interest.

The landowner at Brigade Hill has currently fenced the memorial site, constructed a by-pass road and erected a guesthouse adjoining the memorial plaque. He is charging K5 per visitor to the memorial site and K15 per night for guesthouse accommodation or campsite fee. The visitor fee for the Brigade Hill memorial should be waived if KTA pays the landowner to maintain the site.

14. Cultural Activities for Visitors and Trekkers:

Communities were encouraged to market their culture in the form of welcome songs and singsing groups. The welcome singsing at Kovelo is normally K100 per performance. There does not appear to be any charge for religious welcome songs. Some villagers expressed interest in selling bilums, baskets and other handcrafts to trekkers, and possibly through a future information hut at Ower’s Corner and at the Kokoda and Sogeri Authority office. Books, maps and postcards of the Kokoda Track could also be sold at these outlets.

Action Plans for Wards in conjunction with LLG Five Year Plans:

The following list of wish-list projects for the five year development plans of Wards and Villages (From Kokoda to Depo / Sogeri) was supplied during the Awareness Patrol. Some wards and villages have yet to supply their action plans.

Ward 1 (Asimba), Ward 4 (Amada), Ward 5 (Kokoda Station), Ward 6 (Koagea Block), Ward 7 (Kebara) and ward 10 (Waju) are in the Kokoda Local Level Government’s Five Year Decelpment Plan, a copy of which will be supplied in the near future. Discussions with these Kokoda wards / Villages has been left with the Kokoda LLG President and Ward Councillors and the Chairman of the Authority
