ANZAC Kokoda Update.
Brigade Hill - Agulogo

Early this morning the team attended an emotional Dawn Service held on Brigade Hill. A morning everyone will remember through the tears and realisation of the importance in the history of the Kokoda Campaign.

After service the team descended down to Menari for morning tea and a well earned rest. Menari is a beautiful little village where previous trekkers have helped us install solar panel systems for the school and village.

Setting off for Agulogo the team faced "The Wall", an extremely steep climb to reach the top before decending down amongst the slippery tree roots. Agulogo was a welcome site to take off the boots and have a cool down in the waters. This afternoon they rest and clean up some gear before dinner.

Everyone is going ok, a few sore and tired bodies coming toward the end of the trek. Only a few days to go. Well done team!

Tomorrow it is Ioribaiwa Village.

ANZAC Kokoda Trek Update.
Camp 1900 - Brigade Hill

After a cool wet night at Camp 1900, the team made their way to Brigade Hill arriving by 5.30pm.

This morning they stopped at Naduri for morning tea, Naduri is the home of the late Ovuru Ndiki who sadly passed away in November 2013. Ovuru was one of the last Fuzzy Fuzzy Angels who served during the Kokoda Campaign. Trekkers are able to visit his memorial and tomb to pay their respects and gratitude.

It was then onto Efogi for lunch where the team enjoyed one of the boys specialties sweet potato fritters. All are doing exceptionally well though beginning to feel a little tired, spirits were lifted once they realised they have made the half way point across the track.

Tonight they relax and take off the boots while the boys prepare Nori Rolls and Satay Beef for dinner. Well done team, you're nearly there!

Tomorrow its onward to Nauro.

ANZAC Kokoda Update.
Eora Creek - Camp 1900

Today was one tough day for the group, reaching the highest point on the track the team spent hours climbing and descending some extremely tough terrain.

After a much needed lunch break it was onto Mt Bellamy stopping at the Kokoda Gap to take in the breathtaking views. Today is about supporting and encouraging each other as a team, it is no easy feat.

Arriving into Camp 1900 at 5.30pm the whole team are completely exhausted but in good spirits. It's been a cool day but just starting to rain.

Tomorrow it's onward to Brigade Hill, a moment in time they will always remember.

Lest We Forget.

ANZAC Kokoda Update.
Cons - Eora Creek

After another early morning rise and a good night sleep to the sounds of the rain, the team attended a very special Service at Surgeons Rock. A morning they will always remember. Not a dry eye amongst the group.

Arriving into Eora Creek at 12.30pm the team are having a wash in the chilly waters while our boys prepare them Nachos for lunch. It is a short day so everyone can rest their tired muscles and be ready for another big day tomorrow.

The clouds are rolling in and the boys say big rain is coming. This afternoon they will gather and hear the stories and history of where they are on the track. Tonights dinner is Arancini Balls, local Veggies and Carrot Cake.

Everyone is going strong and send their love to you all!

Tomorrow its onward to Camp 1900.

ANZAC Kokoda Update.
Hoi - Cons/Surgeon Rock

With an early start, the team set off for Deniki passing through the lush green choke vines. After a rest and some morning tea it was onward to Isurava Village for lunch, everyone loved the Dahl Bart Curry! It was a much needed refuel. Continuing onto Isurava Battle Site, a minutes silence was held to remember the soldiers who fought, and to pay tribute to the Fuzzy Fuzzy Angels. The Battle Site was lost for many years to the jungle, now cleared it serves as a memorial to the soldiers who died during the Kokoda Campaign.
Another 20 minute walk and the team arrived into Surgeons/Cons Rock Campsite at 4pm where they will stop for the night.
All are tired, but doing well. The day stayed sunny until the clouds started rolling in this afternoon, still no sign of rain.

Thank you to all the families and friends sending through your well wishes! I relayed them to Shane over the Satellite phone and he passed them on. Everyone said a big thank you! Your words of support and encouragement go along way with a persons mindset, keep them coming!

Tomorrow its Eora Creek.
