Welcome to my website. My name is Frank Taylor and this website - and the company it introduces - have been brought about by a deep lifetime passion and respect for Australia’s military history. I served with the Australian Army Reserve for 31 years through all ranks, to retire as a Captain.
I first walked the Kokoda Trail in 1983 beginning a 30 plus years relationship with the people and the landscape along with sharing a practical application of my research and reading to the group I was with. The groups’ encouragement lead me to create my own business ( Kokoda Treks and Tours ) which, from the start, delivers historically comprehensive and often personalized tours along the Kokoda Trail and beachheads. Initially these tour operations were on a part time basis, but, since retirement, now full time.
As word of mouth spread, customers requested that we use our detailed research, commentary and preparation methods to branch out and provide guided tours to locations such as : The Western Front, Gallipoli, Greece and Crete, Malaysia and Singapore, Thai-Burma Railway, Borneo and Sandakan, Tobruk and Alamein and more.
Please contact us and discuss what you seek from a tour into Australia’s military history. We have the background, the experience and the knowledge to help.
