Welcome to the Katikati Tramping Club website.

As a club based in the Western Bay Of Plenty, and dedicated to outdoor activities, we endeavour to encourage people to enjoy the amazing environment with which New Zealand is blessed .

Club trips range from family walks on easy tracks to longer, multi day tramps on and off track in difficult terrain.

We run a trip every second weekend, usually within easy driving distance of Katikati, though occasionally we venture further afield if the destination is worth the extra driving time.  Occasional mid-week trips are also done on an ad hoc basis.  Longer, 3 or 4 day weekend trips are a regular occurrence, and these are usually day trips made from a fixed base about half a day's driving from Katikati.

Tramping is not just a healthy activity, it is also a great way to make new friends and meet new people.  The social aspect of tramping is as important as the physical activity.

We actively encourage new members, so go to the 'How to Join the Club' page and see how easy it is.  All the information you need will be there.
