Will Genia


Will Genia is the star halfback for the Wallabies Australian rugby union side and a proud ambassador for the Kokoda Track Foundation. Born in Papua New Guinea and migrating to Australia at the age of twelve, Will intimately understands the unique bond Australia shares with its closest neighbour.

“There’s a reason so many Australians choose to walk the Kokoda Track. When you trek Kokoda you step into history and feel a connection with the Aussie soldiers who fought along Kokoda during World War II but you also feel a connection with the people of Papua New Guinea who live in communities along the track today.”

Like Will, you can follow in the footsteps of our Diggers and meet the communities on the track. See our list of trusted Kokoda Tour Operators who’ll take you there.
