Trip back to Death Railway
EVER thought about exploring the infamous Death Railway to gain a better understanding of what life was like for Aussie PoWs forced to make this vital supply line for the Japanese in World War II?
You can Trek the Track in November through Belmore Travel, exploring the abandoned sections of the railway and bushbash to many old sites where PoWs suffered or died.
Some days are challenging, but without the physical demand of the Kokoda Track.
Discover lost railway stations, cuttings, tunnels and camp sites that few Aussies have visited since this section was pulled up by the Thais in 1948.
You will ride in a diesel train down the infamous line still in operation today, just like the PoWs did in 1943, including a rugged section few have seen.
You will stand in the location where Aussies were originally buried and visit a beautifully maintained war cemetery where so many now rest.
You will access the Memorial Track from the Hintok River Camp then walk the 4.5km track to Hellfire Pass to arrive soon before the service on Remembrance Day.
