    It was very disappointing, that NO official Anzac Day Dawn Service was conducted at Kokoda Station for 2010. Whilst I fully understand that there was a service at both Bomana and Isurava, the lack of a service at Kokoda left myself and approximately 20 other Australians (including serving personnel from the RAAF) feeling very let down. I certainly hope that the Australian High Commission would consider for next year, to send a group email to all of the trekking companies, detailing the locations of the respective Anzac Day services.
