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 600. 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, biking, youth programme and climbing and mountaineering. Have a look at our activities page for more details. ...
Our schedule is packed with all kinds of trips, all year round.
At our next meeting:
Stu Hutson and his wife recently had what he describes as a “leisurely tramping holiday in some of New Zealand’s loveliest terrain”.
Over 13 days they did some easy to medium tramping trips on the Travers/Sabine circuit, to Mt Owen and around the Mt Arthur tablelands, taking in a variety of scenery and some spectacular sights.
Last December, Lorraine Johns did a ten-day climbing trip in Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park with Simon Bell, Patrick Arnold and Rob Hawes.
The TTC team traversed the Anzac Peaks before ascending Aoraki/Mt Cook via the Linda Glacier route, then flying to the head of the Tasman Glacier to climb Hochstetter Dome, Walter, Green, and Elie De Beaumont.
Simon and Rob also climbed Vancouver, and Simon and Lorraine finished the trip with an ascent of The Footstool.
Be a great tramper, follow the Minimum Impact Code
