Tramping Program
July August 2018

Avon Tramping Club Program  Club policy:

Names and phone numbers of tramp leaders will no longer be displayed.

Non members must first contact the information officers.

This is to ensure new trampers have been properly briefed on club requirements.

Info. officers:  

Garry Roberts +64 (3) 349 7875             Judy Murphy   +64 (3) 348 3858

TO GO TRAMPING you must ring the leader before 7pm the previous night. Also check the meeting place as this varies.

Trampers should bring lunch, enough food and drink to last all day, sun hat, sun block and clothing for all weather conditions.

A raincoat is essential. Have a change of clothing and footwear, and a plastic bag for wet boots, in the car.

We have made a reciprocal arrangement with Hagley Tramping Club enabling us to join them on their tramps, often on a Sunday. So, if you want to try it out, check their website and contact the leader.


Kea populations are falling rapidly. If you spot any on your trips, please note the date/number of birds/location and report the information to Kea Conservation Trust,
