  • Buy fresh fruits and vegetables from the locals at the village of Naoro.
  • Stay overnight at an old wartime campsite on the banks of Ua Ule Creek.

Tips

  • The ideal time to trek the Kokoda Trail is between the months of April to October when it is the dry season.
  • Practice walking on inclines before you start on the Kokoda Trek as it will help you build stamina and endurance.
  • Wear well-used boots as wearing new ones may lead to blistered feet.
  • Pack a light jacket as the evenings can get quite cold at the higher altitudes.
  • Ask your guide for help if you find it difficult to communicate with the villagers.
  • Try some delicious seafood, fresh from the waters of the Tigak area.
  • When you paddle your way to different islands, try and meet with local folk and watch their way of life.
  • Surfing conditions are good throughout the year so come prepared to spend lots of time in the water.
