Photographer's Note

A woman washes her clothes at Naduri village which is at about the midpoint of the 96km Kokoda Track.

In 1942 the Kokoda Track was the battleground of one of the bloodiest campaigns in WW2 and it was here that young Australian Diggers repelled a much larger and better equipped Japanese Army. The Kokoda Track was difficult to conquer as neither side could maintain a supply line over the rugged terrain. 600 Australians and 3000 Japanese lost their lives here.

Today this challenging trek is undertaken by several thousand Australians each year - they remember the Diggers and the Papua New Guinean Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels who supported them.
