New Guinea Travel Map. 1:2,000,000 (East part of island) and 1:1,650,000 (west part of island). ITMB.
This totally new edition now includes the western part of the island - the Indonesian province of West Irian - thus offering complete coverage of New Guinea island, much like ITMB's other island maps for Borneo and Dominican Republic/Haiti. This map also includes some of the islands west of New Guinea, including the newly independent country of East Timor (not a lot of detail, but very handy to have it on this map). The legend includes: roads by classification, airfields, points of interests, wildlife reserves, lakes, museums, ferries, churches, beaches, waterfalls, ruins, volcanoes and more.

Kokoda Trail hiking maps. 1:100,000. Papua New Guinea. The Kokoda Track or Trail is a single-file foot thoroughfare that runs 96 km (60 mi) overland — 60 km (37 mi) in a straight line — through the Owen Stanley Range in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Three 1:100,000 topographic maps offer complete coverage of the Trail (listed below). The track is the most famous in PNG and is renowned as the location of the World War II battle between Japanese and Australian forces in 1942.
The track starts, or ends, at Ower's Corner in Central Province, 50 km (31 mi) east of Port Moresby, and then crosses rugged and isolated, terrain, which is only passable on foot, to the village of Kokoda in Oro Province. It reaches a height of 2,190 m (7,185 ft) as it passes around the peak of Mount Bellamy.
Hot, humid days with intensely cold nights, torrential rainfall and endemic tropical diseases such as malaria make it a challenge to walk. Despite the challenge posed it is a popular hike that takes between five and 12 days (depending on fitness). Locals have been known to hike the route in three days. (Text courtesy of Wikipedia).
