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. ...

In 1991, during its centennial celebrations, the New Zealand Alpine Club put out a challenge to mountaineers to climb 100 designated peaks in New Zealand. On February 21, 2021, when Don French stepped upon the summit of Mt Unicorn [2560 metres] on the Strauchon Glacier, he completed his thirty-year mission to climb all 100 peaks. He was the first to do so.
