Kokoda Nationals Event 2022
This year's Kokoda National Gathering was held in Dunsborough, Western Australia in September 2022.
The event was held at the Southern Stars Holiday Park, Dunsborough and saw almost 50 Kokoda vans attend with over 100 Kokodians.
"The event was a huge success and the week went fantastically well! Everyone had a ball and made new friends. It was a very positive vibe, just like every other National event in the past." Vicki (The organiser of the event)

The organisers of this event are Vicki and Glenn Bryant who are also Admin of the Kokoda Caravan Owners Group. Vicki and Glenn had some significant helpers in the lead up to the event, and lots of volunteers during the week. All these Kokodians contributed to the smooth running of this, the 5th Kokoda Nationals. This event would not be as successful without the support of: Kokoda Caravans, Happy Campers Australia, Mickey Blu, Trail-A-Mate, Redarc, Southern Stars Holiday Park, Beef by the Reef.
The Kokoda Caravan Owners group can be found on Facebook. They are a friendly group of Kokodians supporting each other in their adventures.
We would like to thank Vicki, Glenn, all the helpers/volunteers & the Kokodians who made the event such a success, for their hardwork with the planning and for being passionate Kokodians.
