Interactive 3D images show the terrain and the battle sites in groundbreaking graphic detail.

Conceived by author Patrick Lindsay, the Kokoda app captures the spirit that was born at Gallipoli and came of age at Kokoda: a spirit of mateship, sacrifice, courage and endurance against overwhelming odds. It's a story that continues to inspire today.
The Kokoda campaign turned back a Japanese invasion force bent on capturing Port Moresby by land. Had the invaders succeeded, Australia would have been at their mercy.
