PTC is one of Christchurch's largest tramping clubs
Based in Christchurch, New Zealand, the Peninsula Tramping Club is a large friendly club offering a wide range of trips, mostly in the central part of the South Island. Search our trips list to see where we have been.
The club consists of people of all ages who tramp for recreation.
We organise regular trips to cater for people of different levels of fitness and tramping experience. Our trips range from easy to hard, and may be anything from day trips to long weekends.
Various instruction courses run each year to improve members' skills for back country tramping.
We also hold a monthly club meeting, and a variety of social events.
CLUB NIGHTS are held on the second Tuesday of each month in the Baptist Church Hall at 286 Oxford Terrace. This is located on the corner of Madras Street and Oxford Terrace , starting promptly at 7.45 pm. Doors open 7.30.

Volunteering in Antarctica
Last summer, Grant Hunter spent a month at Scott Base, one of two volunteers supported by Antarctica NZ and the NZ Antarctic Society. Mostly sorting storage areas around Base, with plenty of time in the land of the midnight sun to get out and about. Be inspired by Grant's photographs and learn how you might volunteer.
