  • It’s safe to say the Coast to Coast Challenge is probably the greatest adventure I’ll ever go on. The 284 kilometre bike and hike from Buna on the North Coast to Port Moresby on the South Coast exceeded all my expectations. From bucketing rain to intense humidity / heat, steep climbs to never ending descents, […]

    Charlotte Bull
  • To all involved, your group of people have made my trek with you something that I will hold onto and cherish for ever!

    Morgan Critchley
  • Team, I’m a member of a group that recently completed one of your treks and wanted to provide some feedback. Trepidation is probably how best to describe my lead up.

    Julie Renehan
  • Thank you to you all. It was a great experience. Greg was an excellent leader, and his passion for and knowledge of the campaign really brought it to life and made it a memorable and emotional part of the trek. Your guide team couldn’t have done a better job. Their silent dignity and selfless support […]

    Andrew Hutchinson
  • Wayne and team – great job, thank you. Immaculate organisation throughout, well done. Special shout-out to Greg Chamberlin and his commitment to the walkers’ experience – he had a couple of big tumbles, is there a plan B if the guide goes down? The porters were amazing. My porter, Neville, was great, it was his […]

    Jim Mantle

His friendly demeanour, genuine empathy for the fallen soldiers and local PNG people, knowledge of military strategy, respect for the individuals in the team, jovial spirit, compassion and respect for the local people, love of the outdoors and natural environment was uncompromising. He was a joy to be […]
