A Tramper's Guide to the Tararua Ranges
by Merv Rodgers
was first published by the Canterbury University Press in 1996.
The aim of this guide is to aid the tramper (walker, backpacker, hiker) of moderate fitness who is going on a particular trip for the first time. A few trips are simple road-end walks, but the majority are tramping trips that need boots, pack, and the usual tramping gear. The region covered is the Tararua Forest Park and its foothills; bounded roughly by the main roads along the Wairarapa and Horowhenua; the Akatarawa–Waikanae road; the Manawatu Gorge and the Rimutaka Hill.
