The 2016 MATES in Construction Kokoda Trek is starting to build momentum with the Building Employees Redundancy Trust hosting a breakfast in Brisbane to launch the trek in Queensland on Wednesday 18 May at the Victoria Park Golf Complex, Brisbane.

Already there are teams forming in other states, particularly Western Australia, and people are beginning to train to prepare themselves for the trek itself.

The breakfast in Brisbane provides an opportunity to find out more about the trek, hear from an inspirational speaker Mick Donaldson, former SAS Patrol Commander who is an outdoor enthusiast and adventurer, who will talk about his personal experiences.

You can even sign up for the trek on the day!
