The park commemorates those who served on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea.

More than 600 Australian soldiers lost their lives on what became known as one of the most heroic battlefields of World War Two. The park features a memorial pathway leading to a monument. The path is a symbolic representation of the Kokoda Track.
