The golden staircase was a steep set of log steps that became the only entry to the Owen Stanley Range for the allies. Every man, gun, mortar, artillery piece and stretcher had to come up and down that hill.

The Australians’ final defensive position

Imita Ridge was reached by the “golden stairs” which consisted of some 2,000 timber steps cut into the mountain side by the engineers. It was an exhausting climb. After leaving the Uberi track it rose 400 metres in the first 2 kilometres, dropped some 500 metres and then rose about 700 metres in the last 2.5 kilometres.
