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.

Dave Grainger reports on climbs earlier this year of four classic South Island peaks, D'Archiac, Kehu, Travers, and Mackenzie. He contrasts the approaches taken for each climb and the climbing styles used, samples the stunning views on offer, and suggests some therapeutic benefits of trips such as these.
