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.
