The Kokoda Track is a route in Papua New Guinea which leads from

the village of Kokoda across the mountains into Papua towards Port

Moresby. It was the route used by a small Japanese force in 1942 to

attack Port Moresby. Their attack petered out as they ran out of

ammunition and food,, and an Australian counter-attack in strength

was mounted. It ended the southward drive by Japanese forces.

in Papua New Guinea.
