28 October

In the footsteps of West Coast gold miners

In the footsteps of West Coast gold miners.

Mining relics, snow, and magnificent views were highlights of two South Island tramps done by Pip Newton and Vicki Wogan in July. After warming up by climbing Mt Fyffe near Kaikoura, they spent three days on Kirwans Track near Reefton, following in the footsteps of early gold miners.

A perfect summer’s day high on a mountain

Summer on Mt Harper

Lorraine Johns recalls a perfect summer's day spent high on Mount Harper, and a previous climb of Mount Murchison, the highest peak in Arthur's Pass National Park. Both peaks are typically climbed from Barker Hut and Lorraine speculates on the possibility of ticking off both summits in the same weekend.

4 November Life/50 year members’ night

Life/50 year members’ night

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 Maxim’s new film Kime Hut – 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.

11 November Tramping: A New Zealand history

Tramping: A New Zealand history

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.

18 November Tramping in East Greenland

Tramping in East Greenland

Julia and Ken Fraser share their recent experiences of the icebergs, glaciers, fiords, lakes and Inuit culture of Greenland.

25 November From the Greek Islands to Anatolia

From the Greek Islands to Anatolia

Paddy Gresham takes us on a walking tour of the Greek Islands, around the mosques of Istanbul and into the heartland of Anatolia, a part of the world where thousands of years of history and recent wars confront the traveller.

2 December Exploring the Kahurangi National Park

Exploring the Kahurangi National Park

In January, Russell Cooke and ten other TTC members visited Kahurangi National Park, combining an exploration of the 1000 acre plateau with a walk along the length of the Matiri Range. Challenges faced by the party included getting up the side of the “Haystack” using a rope, and negotiating a razor-back section of the Matiri Range.

9 December Christmas Finale

Christmas Finale

It's that time of year again! Join us at the clubrooms to celebrate and reflect on the year's trips. There will be Christmas cake and drinks to enjoy, and carols with the Salvation Army to add to the Christmas cheer. You're welcome to bring a small gift to be given to a child in need. $4 door charge. Note the earlier start time: 7.30pm.
