The Kokoda Trail or known to the diggers as the Kokoda Track, is more than a just bushwalk, it’s a trekking adventure you’ll never forget! The 96 kilometre (as the crow flies) Kokoda Track still bears its battle scars in the shape of scattered ammunition, guns, helmets and stirring campfire stories. Trekking the original Kokoda War Track is an honour that allows one to not only step well outside of their comfort zone, but to also appreciate the unimaginable extremes in which our soldiers pushed themselves to during World War II. There are steep rugged mountains, treacherous ridges, jungle terrain, unforgiving rivers and rainforests with giant trees that will tower over you and look down, mocking you, at every opportunity. Walk the Kokoda Track in 2019 on a PNG Adventure that embraces the local culture, and experience nature at it’s wildest!
If you are interested in this unique adventure, please contact Jim Pennington ([email protected]) for more information.
Regional events will be held in the evening and open to Old Armidalians, current and prospective parents.

To commemorate the School’s 125th anniversary the OAU is proposing a suitable set of gates as its project to mark the occasion. Designed by the School’s long-time architect Antony Deakin, the gates will echo the entryways from Douglas, Barney and Mann Streets. This $40,000 project will give a substantial facelift to a part of the campus that is increasingly becoming the main entry to TAS for so many in the wider community.
