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:
After some rousing singing of old tramping songs led by Michael Brown and Peter Barber, the theme of nostalgia will continue with the first ever public showing of Paul Maximís new film Kime Hut Ė Through the Ages. The Club has a long and intimate association with this venerated alpine shelter, famous for its chilly interior yet heart-warming appearance when it looms out of a thick Tararua mist.
Shaun Barnett and Chris Maclean are co-authors of the first history of tramping in New Zealand. During the nineteenth century, Maori, explorers and surveyors laid the foundations for what became recreational tramping in the twentieth century. The development of clubs during the 1920s and 30s led to the establishment of a distinctive New Zealand tramping culture. More recently, trampers have been at the forefront of battles to establish and protect national parks and wilderness areas. Signed copies of their recently-published book,Tramping: A New Zealand history, will be available for sale.
Be a great tramper, follow the Minimum Impact Code
