Kokoda stamps commemorate Anzac Day

Post offices in Australia and Papua New Guinea are commemorating Anzac Day with a joint issue of stamps featuring the Kokoda Track.

Rod Hillman from the Kokoda Track Authority says the move is a great initiative.

"We've got a stamp here celebrating this special relationship between Papua New Guinea and Australia, and I think it's really important that it has been launched in both countries on the same day," he said.

The stamps portray a short history from 1942 when Australia fought with Japan along the Kokoda Track, to modern day Australian trekkers with their PNG guides.
