THE KOKODA WALK IN THE
DANDENONG RANGES NATIONAL PARK


CONTRIBUTORS

The Kokoda Walk has been a community project, largely organised and constructed by volunteers. Parks Victoria provided the land for the Walk, the technical knowledge and expertise of their staff and the financial support for this publication. This book was written with the valuable assistance of the Education Department of Victoria, in particular, Wendy Worrell. Gillian Hibbins provided great assistance with editing.

WMC through its chairman, Mr Hugh Morgan AO, provided funding for the plaques cast by Arrow Bronze, Melbourne. The Royal Australian Army Engineering Corps volunteered the 'diggers' to construct the concrete plinths for the small plaques.

Mr. Kim Wells, Member for Wantirna, initiated the project.

Dr. Ross Bastiaan sculpted and worded the plaques, wrote this book and coordinated the Kokoda Walk in the Dandenong Rangers project. The veterans of the Kokoda campaign offered expert, first hand, historical knowledge. The Mount Dandenong and District Historical Society prepared the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels, Kingsbury VC and Parer plaques.
