Upcoming meetings

10 May Sacred sites and pilgrimage routes in Japan

To mark a significant birthday in September 2015, Amie Claridge and Piers Harris spent five days walking some of the pilgrimage routes of the Kii Mountain Range in Japan, visiting sacred Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. Local Japanese food and soaking in onsen at the end of each day were a nice break from dehy and a quick splash in an ice-fed river.

17 May Tales of Raoul and the Kermadecs

Raoul and the Kermadecs: Historical tales

Steve Gentry, author of the first history of the Kermadec Islands, has some fascinating stories to tell about New Zealand's northernmost territory. Last year the Government announced plans to create a new and very large Kermadec Ocean Sanctuary. Copies of Steve's book Raoul and the Kermadecs: Historical tales will be available for sale for $55. A reminder that club night programmes commence at 7.30 from tonight.

24 May Winter activities evening

Winter activities evening

Join the Club’s winter sports enthusiasts for a glass of gluhwein, then sit back and hear how the Club can help you to plan and enjoy some great adventures in the snow. Please note the earlier start time of 7.00pm for 7.30pm and $4 entry charge.

31 May The Quest for Ivory Lake

The Quest for Ivory Lake

In March this year, Peggy Munn and six TTC members set off for the West Coast to tramp to Ivory Lake at the head of the Waitaha Valley. As with all true quests, it was a mighty challenge underlined by hut book entries of many aborted trips by other parties. This was a one-off attempt to get somewhere special and it lived up to expectations!

A trek, a safari, and beach-blobbing in Tanzania

A trek and a safari in Tanzania

Rosemary Wilson's three week holiday in Tanzania included a trek in the beautiful Usambara mountains, a safari through four National Parks, and beach-blobbing in Zanzibar. The Usambaras offer a unique experience and proved a great alternative to slogging up Kilimanjaro.

The Hunter Valley the easy way
