Departure from Australia

Check-In Time

You must be at the airport to check-in at least two hours prior to your scheduled departure time.  If you have an interstate connection flight you must plan to arrive at your international departure airport at least three hours prior to departure.  If your connection flight is delayed for any reason there is always a good chance that you might just make it onto your scheduled flight but your baggage won’t. There is little room for error in PNG and it could result in you missing the first few days of your trek until we can fly you to Efogi village with our half-way supplies.

Kokoda Polo Shirt

You will receive a Kokoda polo shirt in the mail prior to your departure. We ask that you wear this on your flight to PNG.  It makes it much easier for our PNG reception crew to identify you when you clear customs on arrival in PNG. 

Trekking Boots

We recommend you wear your trekking boots onto the plane for your flight to PNG.  We can help replace most personal items if your bags go astray but boots are more of a challenge.
