Share the News
Australian trackers visited AFL PNG on Sunday at the Murray Barracks play ground to show interest in supporting their Kokoda Track Program for PNG kids.

The AFL ground was filled with kids from all age groups who came to meet and greet the trekkers and share a game of friendly football.


Also in the pack were the U-14 Binatang boys, who were happily coached by the trackers during a friendly match.


The Victoria Police Kokoda Track Program has been running for 8 year now. It saw 40 trackers, all in uniform, attend the AFL competitions at the Murray Barracks sporting arena.


Most of the trackers were AFL players who were willing to share some great football drills to the kids.


Part of the Kokoda Track Project is to raise funds for kids from across the country so that the money made is given to educational institutions to provide better and quality education to the children of PNG.


The highlight of the day was the U-14 Binatang boys, who trained on the side with help and support from the trackers.


The trackers had a ball with the kids as they played and mingled, all in their smiles.


The kids enjoyed the day and expressed their happiness through the sporting enjoyment and company of the trackers.


The U-14 boys have excelling in all their games and are still holding the Queensland State Title.


The Binatang boys will travel to Brisbane, Australia this Saturday to defend their Queensland State title.
