Welcome to the Homepage of the South Canterbury Tramping Club.
If you are interested in outdoor activities, conservation issues, looking for some healthy exercise, wish to access areas that you may otherwise not visit, or simply to meet new people, we welcome your interest.
Based in Timaru with easy access to the most spectacular lakes and mountains in New Zealand, the South Canterbury tramping club organises a wide range of trips to take advantage of what this region has to offer.
Club nights are held on the second Monday of each month at the Church Street Bible Chapel starting at 7.30pm.
Take a look at our upcoming trips and contact the leader to find out more details, or alternately come along to a club meeting and learn more about us
This will involve at least 8 hours walking. Initially heading up the Waimakariri river passing Carrington hut and continuing on further another 6km along the White river to reach Barker hut. (8 bunk) hut owned by the CMC.
We will probably stay in Arthurs Pass on the Friday night so we have an early start for the long day on Saturday.
