Welcome to Travelpoint
Holidays’ Kokoda Track and
Papua New Guinea
Travelpoint Holidays has been a leader in Australian holidays for over
10 years and today our team of over 250 are here to create the most
wonderful holiday experiences for you.

With our comprehensive brochure range covering all parts of Australia,
New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific and in partnership
with our 4,000+ travel agency partners in Australia and New Zealand,
we are here to create and deliver your perfect holiday experience.

Papua New Guinea is an untamed paradise just waiting to be discovered
– Beautiful beaches, diverse culture, some of the best diving in the world
and the famous Kokoda Track. My experience of walking the Kokoda Track
is one I’ll never forget. It was one of the toughest and most rewarding
things I’ve ever done and I am sure that for those of you who undertake
this amazing experience you will remember it forever. In our program we
feature Kokoda Track tours conducted by Getaway Trekking, who’ve been
operating tours along the Track for over 12 years. I cannot recommend
them highly enough. We’ve also featured a selection of other PNG holiday
options including beach, diving and fishing packages, as well as some
incredible wilderness cruises.

So whether you’re discovering the untouched gems of Papua New Guinea
or taking on the challenge of Kokoda, have a great time on your
Travelpoint Holiday and thank you for letting us create the adventure of a
lifetime for you.
