Metal plaque attached to a building at the Kodak Australasia factory site at Coburg, that commemorates the official opening of the Wak Trak by the Honourable Justin Madden (Sports and Recreation Minister of Victoria) on 13th May 2003.

The Wak Trak was an outdoors walking track, designed to keep "Kodak employees well and healthy". Through the Wak Trak program, Kodak were investing in workplace health and safety and employee recreation. The Wak Trak offered staff two track options: a day track of 2.3 kilometres and a night track (for factory shift workers) of 1.3 km.

This object is part of the Kodak Heritage Collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
