Ōtepoti Tuesday Trampers

Ōtepoti Tuesday Trampers (Club) is a social and supportive walking group for over 50s based in Dunedin. We go tramping in the wider Dunedin area every Tuesday throughout the year.

Weekly Tramps in the Dunedin region

The tramps are typically of 4-7 hours duration and usually visit tracks in the wider Dunedin area or travel to interesting places within about an hour’s drive of Dunedin.

There is a designated leader for every tramp, who is assisted by three deputy leaders. They will recce the track in advance.

On the day the leader will explain the route before the main group sets off. During the tramp the leaders will be spread throughout the group, carefully monitoring those on the tramp. The club is particularly safety conscious. Locator beacons are always carried by one or more of the leaders.

Join us

New members are always welcome. You need to complete three tramps before joining the club. This gives you time to evaluate what our club does, and make an informed decision as to whether it is for you or not.

You also need to be nominated and seconded by two current members. The annual subscription is $20.00, payable after the annual AGM. If you are interested then please refer to the Contact page.

The club runs as a cooperative and all members are expected to help organise and lead tramps. As a new member you will be given time to settle in, and to work out the kind of tramp you can help with, depending on your level of experience and fitness.

Essential Items that are to be carried by each tramper

1. Members should ensure they are correctly equipped for tramping. They should provide and bring with them on each tramp the following:

• day pack with name, address and phone number printed on the inside or on a label

• strong shoes or boots with a good tread

• waterproof parka or similar

• woollen or polar fleece jersey, hat and gloves, overtrousers

• scarf, sunhat, survival sheet or bag

• cut lunch and some extra food (eg muesli bars, chocolate), and up to 2 litres of fluid

• whistle; cup; a small personal first aid kit

• cell phone if possible

2. Members must be realistic about their own capabilities and level of fitness. The grading assigned to each tramp is intended to assist this.
