Kokoda – The Spirit Lives

This month 75 years ago, Australian and Japanese forces came head to head at Isurava in one of the most ferocious onslaughts that saw a devastating number of casualties for both sides. A key event in the ultimate Australian victory over the Japanese invasion of Papua New Guinea during World War II.

In a tribute to the diggers that fought and gave their lives on the track, Australian war media icon Patrick Lindsay has produced his latest documentary ‘Kokoda – The Spirit Lives’ to honour their memory.

On 29 August, the RSL & Services Clubs Association along with RSL Clubs across NSW, VIC and QLD held a special world premiere screening of the new documentary. The premiere date was chosen to coincide with the anniversary of the Battle of Isurava.
