Our Clubrooms are a valuable asset. They are 100% owned by the club and we hire them out to several other organisations - including other tramping clubs! For information regarding club room hire please fill in the booking inquiry form or contact our club rooms booking officer (see club contacts page).

Gear Room

The gear room exists for the benefit of club members and stocks gear (over 400 items) needed on trips. Most of the gear is lent free to members. Most of the gear is not available to non-members. The gear room is open each club evening for members to draw and/or return gear for club trips or private trips. Hire equipment includes: Tents, tent flies, billies, insulation mats, axes, ice axes, ice hammers, crampons, packs, first aid kits, avalanche transceivers, personal locator beacons, food, dehydrators, etc:


The clubrooms are also the home for our library. Members wishing to borrow books or magazines, should fill out details in the issue book.

Have a look in the TTC Library catalogue

Some of our more historic literature has been forwarded to the Turnbull Library for safe-keeping.

Club Archives

The club maintains a documentary and photographic archive of club activites and history.

Tararua Lodge

Tararua Tramping Club Lodge is our unique alpine lodge situated on the northern slopes of Mt. Ruapehu within the Whakapapa ski area, in Tongariro National Park and World Heritage area.

Tararua Lodge is the base for many of our winter activities, and also is available for use by members and non-members all year, although at least one of the party must be a TTC member.

It is essential you make a booking before visiting the lodge.

To book a ski trip or lodge trip during winter (July to October) please visit our snow trips list.
