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 website is a great resource for information on tramping in the Tararuas - see Tararua Footprints, on the native flora you might encounter - see In the hills, and our extensive trip reports.

With TTC there is always somewhere to go, someone to go with. Whether you have never been into the hills before or you are a seasoned adventurer, the club has much to offer.

Our event schedule is packed with all kinds of trips and activities, all year round.

Our club meetings are held every Tuesday night at our centrally located clubrooms in Moncrieff Street, you are welcome to join us. ...

A geological trek in Papua New Guinea

In 2014 Kevin Norton and a fellow geoscientist from Victoria University went to Papua New Guinea to carry out groundwork for a geological investigation of Mount Dayman, a 3000 metre peak that is being uplifted along the Mai’iu Fault. Their trek from the small town of Agaun in the mountains to Kewansesap on the coast hit on some of the geological, natural, and cultural highlights of this little-seen part of the world.
