Why did they make the Kokoda Trail?
They built the Kokoda Trail for an easy escape trail for the Japs and for good defence. The Kokoda Track was in existence well before WWII. It was used as an overland mail route to access the Yodda Valley gold fields (towards the North Coast) from Port Moresby (South Coast). It is actually a network/system of inter-village tracks disconnected in some areas which were linked up to form the famous Kokoda Track which came into the limelight at the height of WWII during the Kokoda Campaign.

What was the significance of the Kokoda campaign?
The Kokoda Track campaign was a series of battles over a period of six months between the Japanese and the Australians. It showed the dogged determination of the Aussies. The Japanese were attempting to capture bases close to Australia in order to launch more effective air attacks on the Australian mainland . Port Moresby on the southern coast of New Guinea was in a good position to launch such attacks . The Japanese had attempted to send a fleet around the eastern end of New Guinea but were intercepted and stopped ( the Battle of the Coral Sea ) . An alternative method was to march overland from the North of New Guinea down the Kokoda track . But Australian troops were sent to stop that move . The Japanese pushed the Australians back down the track until they were actually in sight of Port Moresby . The determined resistance of the Australians the rugged terrain and ambush tactics wore down the Japanese to the point were they were almost a spent force . Also at that point in time the Americans counter offensive in the Pacific had commenced particularly at the island of Guadalcanal . The Japanese could no longer hope to continue their attack to the South and began to withdraw back along the Kokoda Track . The main significance of the fighting on the track was the delaying tactics used by the Australians had allowed time for Port moresby to be heavily reinforced and also had weakened the Japanese to the point that even if they had reached Port Moresby it is unlikely that they would have been able to capture it . From that point on the Japanese were forced to retreat in the Pacific .
