2024 Kokoda & 50/50 Fundraiser

Kokoda Trail

Welcome, adventure seekers, to an expedition of a lifetime! In 2024, a group of brave souls, known affectionately as the Bloomies, are gearing up for an epic trek along the historic Kokoda Trail. With spirits high and determination in their hearts, they embark on a journey that will test their limits and forge bonds that will last a lifetime.

The Kokoda Trail, nestled in the rugged mountains of Papua New Guinea, holds a special place in the hearts of Australians and New Zealanders. It is a path steeped in history, tracing the footsteps of the ANZAC soldiers who fought valiantly during World War II. As our modern-day adventurers lace up their boots, they carry with them not only their own aspirations but also the spirit of camaraderie and resilience that defined those who came before them.

They understand that this journey is not just about conquering physical challenges but also about lifting each other up, sharing stories, and creating memories that will endure the test of time. With every step they take, they honour the legacy of those who fought and sacrificed for their nations.

As we bid farewell to the Bloomies, we send them off with our heartfelt wishes for a safe and unforgettable adventure. May they traverse the rugged terrain with grace and determination, drawing strength from the bonds they share and the beauty that surrounds them. And when they return, may they bring back tales of courage, perseverance, and the profound impact of kindness in the face of adversity.

To the Bloomies embarking on this momentous journey: seize every moment, cherish every experience, and know that you carry the hopes and well wishes of all who cheer you on from afar. Your adventure awaits, and we have no doubt that you will conquer the Kokoda Trail with flying colours.
