TREK ON 96KM
Extreme Team Challenge
Trek On is a 96km team challenge in remembrance of one of the most important battles for Australians in WWII at the Kokoda Trail. The men who defended this rugged 96km track were the only line of defence protecting Australia from imminent invasion. This trek is in remembrance of the incredible courage and resilience of our soldiers and the Papua New Guineans who served in the Kokoda Campaign. Lest we forget.
With sincere sadness and regret we must advise that Trek2 On 96km will not go ahead in 2022 due to the state of the tracks following the Feb and May weather events. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We have sent email and text messages to all trekkers with more info, and you can read the update here.
Team Orientated Wilderness Trek
Trek On 96km is a team orientated challenge with a minimum of 2 and maximum of 12 people in each team, working together to achieve a team total of 96 kilometres.
Enjoy stunning bush landscape and tranquil lake views, get fit, have fun and raise funds for Trek2Health’s life-changing mental wellness services for our frontline workers and returned ADF members.
Community Event – everyone is welcome to join us. Each team member cam choose the length of their trek, from 1–6 laps, to reach the overall team goal of 96km.

We’re here helping those that help us. We serve those that serve us. So we're facilitating directly, it's not some wishy washy sort of third order effect, it’s directly benefitting the people who go out there and serve us every day. So I really want you to get present to the difference that you make, to the lives of the people that serve our community.
