Why did Australia fight at Kokoda?

Kokoda is an area of Papua new Guinea, Australia's nearest

northern neighbour. If the Japanese had taken control of P.N.G and

more importantly the capital city of Port Morsby which has a deep

water port they would have been able to strike at the Australian

mainland. So it was deemed in Australia's best interests to try and

stop the Japanese along the Kakoda track.
