24 HOUR RATION PACKS: All our food ration packs are prepared on the Gold Coast by my two daughters, Cheree Kearney & Mikayla Roger who have started their own company, Food4Treks.

Each trekker is expected to carry one day's ration of food which weighs around 1kg.  Each morning a new ration pack is given to you by our Kokoda Trekking (KTL) food porters.  Any remaining food leftover from the previous day can be handed to them.

Every effort is made to ensure your food is of a high quality.  Used by dates are carefully checked.  If you suffer from certain alergies or on a special diet, we suggest you check the contents of our packs, details of which can be found by clicking on their website:


For anyone on a special diet it is asked that you bring with you some food of your own to supplement what you may not be able to eat based on the detailed listing of what is included in our ration packs.

Food is packed and shipped to PNG where we pack again according to your trek number.  Food is distributed by us to the half way point of Efogi and the remainder is either sent down to Kokoda if you are commencing your trek from that end or is packed and carried by our food porters from Ower's Corner.

The packs were initially introduced in April 2005 and have been continually refined ever since based on trekker feedback.  We feel we now have a mix that suits most trekkers and where possible we also purchae from villagers local food to supplement our ration packs.

Food4Treks now have an A, B & C pack that has been especially designed for our Kokoda Trekkers.  Wherever possible depending on stock levels, we try and rotate them around so that you end up with various packs rather than the same for the whole 9 days.  The main meal is supplied by Back Country in New Zealand.



Pack C will be loaded shortly.

Pease Note in PNG milk is provided by way of packets of Nestle Sunshine powdered milk, not in portions like in Australia.
