Day 6: Nauro to Va Ule Creek

Continue the climb up the northern side of the Maguli Range to the crest at Mogoronumu.  Long descent with steep sections via Engineers Ridge to a Japanese delaying defensive position.  Continue down to Ofi Creek where the Australians conducted a successful ambush against advancing Japanese troops.

Steep climb towards the crest of Ioribaiwa Ridge.  This is the furthest point reached by the Japanese in their advance towards Port Moresby.  They received direct orders from Tokyo to withdraw from here because of the battle raging against the American Marines at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands.

Trek down the ridge towards Matama Creek.  Follow the creek bed to the campsite at Va Ule Creek.
