We are an enthusiastic group of trampers who enjoy the outdoors and are willing to explore anywhere between the sea shore and the mountain tops. We will welcome you as a member.
The Club runs tramping trips on many weekends during the year. These are either day trips or two  to three day trips, with the odd longer trip. Most trips are local with the odd trip further afield, and you can choose between easy and more challenging trips.
A committee chooses the trips well in advance, and a trip organizer arranges the details of each trip.
Please look in the What’s on window for current trips and further details.

There is also a Wednesday Walking Group which goes on day walks each Wednesday. The Group welcomes anyone who turns up at 8-30am at the meeting place by the tennis courts in Towey St. Oamaru.
For more information, in the Page Headings, hover your cursor over What’s On, and then move it to the right to click on Wednesday Walkers.

Both the Club and the Walking Group emphasize good trip preparation and safety procedures, and some specialized equipment is available. Personal Locator Beacons are taken on all trips.

Below is a link that tells you how to prepare for a day walk and what to bring.


The Club meets at 7-30pm on the 2nd Monday of most months at the North Otago Search and Rescue HQ, 1 Severn St. Oamaru. There past trips are reported, planned trips notified, topics of interest are discussed and there is a guest speaker.

Periodic training courses are held.

Various local tracks are maintained by the Club.
