Welcome to the Tararua Tramping Club and to our web site. If you are interested in outdoor activities, conservation issues, or simply need some healthy exercise and want to meet some friendly people, we may have what you're looking for.
Established in 1919, TTC is the longest established tramping club in Wellington. Our membership is over 700. We are one of some 300 outdoor recreational clubs and societies affiliated to the national body, Federated Mountain Clubs of New Zealand.
Although tramping is our most popular activity, there are many other ways you can enjoy yourself with the club, including family trips, snow sports, day walks, conservation. biking, youth programme and climbing and mountaineering. Have a look at our activities page for more details. ...
Our event schedule is packed with all kinds of trips and activities, all year round.

At our next meeting:
Ian Armitage is a keen ornithologist who won the environment category of the 2014 Wellingtonian of the Year awards for his leadership of the Rimutaka Forest Park Trust in re-establishing a brown kiwi population in the forest park.
He is a Council member of Birds New Zealand (brand name of The Ornithological Society of New Zealand), which promotes the study of birds and their habitats, and fosters knowledge and enjoyment of birds as a precious part of our wildlife heritage.
When Sheena Hudson returned to Wellington in 2012 from some summer hiking in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, Mary Inglis said to her, "Ah but you haven't seen it in winter!"
With such a challenge from her old friend, Sheena went back in the winter of 2013 and spent a week snowshoeing and dog sledding in this amazing Park.
Twice a year the Tararua Tramping Club visits the Wairarapa for a club, family and friends camp and get together at Morison Bush, on the first full weekend of March and first full weekend of December. It's a great trip for young families, teenage families, and club members old and young, who just want to catch up and chill out.
TTC always organises a great weekend, so come and enjoy a relaxing weekend in the sun, lazing by, swimming in, walking along, or kayaking on the Ruamahanga River.
Be a great tramper, follow the Minimum Impact Code
