We also have social events for anyone interested in joining the club, and wanting to get to know us beforehand.

If you wish to find out what tramping is all about, we are happy to take you out on non-club trips, so that you can assess your own fitness, and whether you like tramping or not. A senior club member will take you for a short trip. Contact either Alison Greer or Julia Mackie for more information on this.

The normal transport cost is $20 including GST, unless we’re travelling further afield.

The Grade is measured assuming a reasonably fit person with some tramping experience.

Easy: 4-6 hours with undemanding terrain
Med: 4-6 hours that may include some steep walking
Hard: This could involve tramping for more than 7 hours in tough country
Easy/Med: Options for both easy and medium tramps
