Welcome to the Masterton Tramping Club website, we are a small, friendly and active club. We offer a wide variety of adventures throughout the year. These trips vary from easy, one day walks, to multi day camping trips in the south island.

We meet on the first Wednesday of each month (except January) at the Masterton Community Centre, 41 Perry Street. Visitors and prospective members are encouraged to come along to meetings and join a trip.

Some examples of past trips include:
* Family day trip to Kapiti Island
* Camping at top of Cone, Tararuas
* Easy overnighter to Tutuwai Hut
* Week long adventure past Dragon’s Teeth in Kahurangi National Park
* Off-track adventure, Kiriwhakapapa area, Tararuas

Trip categories are:

Easy: 4-6 hours, possibly hills with plenty of rest stops. Suitable for beginners.
Average: 5-8 hours,some hills, fewer rest stops. Suitable for people with reasonable fitness and some experience.
Fit: 6+ hours per day, lots of hills, may go off-track, stops for lunch and ‘smoko’. Suitable for experienced trampers with good fitness.

We suggest the new members start with an Easy trip to assess their fitness.
The Club has some equipment available for members to borrow.

Panel 1


We are a small club with around 40 members, catering for a variety of fitness levels with shorter easy trips and a few longer and faster excursions.

We meet on the first Wednesday of each month (except January) at the Masterton Community Centre 41 Perry Street at 7.30pm.

Meetings start at 7.30pm, and at most meetings we have a guest speaker or some form of training.

We organise a trip most weekends, either a local trip usually on a Sunday, or a longer overnight trip which may go beyound the immediate area of the Tararuas.
