Welcome to the Tararua Tramping Club. 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 with some 700 members. We are one of more than 300 outdoor recreational clubs and societies affiliated to the national body, Federated Mountain Clubs of Aotearoa.
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. ...
For information on tramping in the Tararuas, see Tararua Tramper's Guide and tramping information. For information about the native flora you might encounter, see In the hills, and our extensive trip reports.
Our event schedule is packed with all kinds of trips and activities, all year round.
