Scott has a deep understanding of Australia’s wartime history and is passionate about passing on the stories of our service men and women.
From beginning to end Adventure Kokoda exceeded all of my expectations. The organisation, food, accommodation at Sogeri Lodge, transfers etc were excellent. All elements of the trek, including transfers went like clockwork. Adventure Kokoda's support of the local community & the care that they extend to all of the porters & support staff was outstanding. The porters & support crew were excellent. They are extremely good at whatever they do, great to work with, have your safety as their number one priority & are great fun to be around.
Of special note was our trek leader Major Scott Babington. The organisation, management & leadership he demonstrated in all aspects of the trek was outstanding. His knowledge of the trail & campaign was second to none which made the briefings much better than any book that I have read plus they had the realism & passion of Scott's delivery as a bonus. I cannot speak highly enough of Scott & Adventure Kokoda & would recommend both to anyone contemplating this challenging but extremely rewarding trek. It would be remiss of me not to say thank you one more time to Major Scott Babington, a man that anyone would be honoured to be associated with.
