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, conservation. 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:
In March, three new marine reserves around Campbell, Bounty, and Antipodes Islands were opened by Conservation Minister Nick Smith. ONE News reporter Renée Graham voyaged south on board HMNZS Wellington to do some feature stories. She visited the world’s largest colony of southern royal albatrosses on Campbell Island and had a close encounter with territorial bull sea lions. A presentation not to be missed!
With the General Election coming up in September, hear what candidates Eugenie Sage (Greens), Ruth Dyson (Labour), Paul Foster-Bell (National) and our own Hugh Barr (New Zealand First) have to say about conservation and environmental issues in New Zealand. Kevin Hackwell of Forest & Bird will chair the discussion.
Be a great tramper, follow the Minimum Impact Code
