Up-date on Covid 19 restrictions
We have a new statement on managing the Covid pandemic, based on the latest government and public health advice in late March 2022. Our statement is published on the Home page of this website. Please read it.
Now, let's go tramping
If you wish to participate in a tramp, please contact the trip leader beforehand, especially if you are a non-member.
For non-members, the trip leader will discuss whether the tramp is suitable for your physical fitness and experience. Non-members are usually expected to start with at least two or three Light tramps before becoming members.
All trips start from Ray Small Drive carpark, next to the Papakura RSA, Elliot Street, Papakura, unless otherwise stated.
When we plan northbound trips, for instance to the Waitakere Ranges, we have a second meeting point at the Recreation Ground carpark, Great South Road, School Corner, Papatoetoe. The meeting time at Papatoetoe will be 20 minutes later than the Papakura meet-up time. Participants with cars will be asked to meet people at one or the other meeting point.
Trip transport is mainly by carpooling, at a set fare per individual trip. Car fares are currently set at 15 cents/km.
For some trips out of the Auckland region, we hire a rental van. Costs for those trips are communicated to everyone at the time.
