Charlie Lynn is a former career soldier, politician, and adventurer. An acclaimed motivator and speaker, Charlie leads survival/leadership treks over the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea for business executives, young leaders and assorted city slickers.
Arguably the most experienced non-Papuan trekker of the Kokoda Trail, Charlie has led 100 treks across the Trail since he first walked it in 1991.
Charlie has an extensive knowledge of the history of the Kokoda campaign and the politics of our relationship with Papua New Guinea. He has been inducted as an Officer of Logohu by the PNG Government for ‘for service to the bilateral relations between Papua New Guinea and Australia and especially in the development of the Kokoda Trail and its honoured place in the history of both nations’ over the past 25 years'. He was recently inducted as a Member of the Order of Australia for his service to the NSW Parliament.
Just a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed your presentation... 'Enjoyed' is the wrong choice of word... the sharing of your knowledge of the Kokoda Track and your ability to lead ... keep reading the audience into the depths and essence of the New Guinea Campaign was, for me, deeply emotional and extremely thought provoking. Your personal delivery is most polished and of world standard. How indeed fortunate we are today, and indebted to that generation of Diggers... It was a pleasure to meet you afterwards. Sydney Water
