Pukekohe Tramping Club is a small but active club that has been going for over 50 years.
Come and join in the fun and experience adventures you never thought possible. Trips are organised to cater for a variety of needs from day trips to weekends and longer expeditions.
Trips are graded from family friendly, no experience on easy tracks, to very advanced multi day off track tramping.

All visitors are welcome to our meetings which are held on the 1st Monday of each month (excluding January) in the Anglican Church Hall, which is situated at 18 Wesley Street, Pukekohe. Click here
Doors open around 7.15pm and the meeting commences at 7.30pm, lasting approximately 2 hours. The meeting covers the clubs reports on previous trips and upcoming trips followed by any general business.
A guest speaker is usually invited to speak on a related topic. The evening finishes with time for supper and an opportunity to meet club members and seek any further information you may require regarding the club.
Day tramps take place on Sundays and are within 1 1/2 hours of Pukekohe. They range from easy walks/tramps of about 4 hours to hard tramping of 6 or more hours. Trips leave Pukekohe at 8am from the carpark opposite McDonalds on Hall Street. You must sign up with the trip leader by the Thursday before to join these trips. Click Here
Homunga Bay track
We have a growing Midweek group that enjoy more low-key and sociable outings on a Wednesday or Thursday. These trips leave at 9am from the Cinema Three Carpark. See the trip schedule for details of trips.
Overnight trips tend to be a bit further away, or to break up longer tramps. Each year the club has a mid-winter overnight celebration in a hut.
Sunset from the Pinnacles
Multi-day trips take us further afield. Previous trips have taken us all over New Zealand, including the South Island.
Rangiwahia Hut, Ruahines
Kokako Recovery Program
Five weekends a year the club travels to Rangitoto Station, south of Otorohanga, to help service bait stations. These are fun, collaborative weekends in beautiful bush.
The club has purchased a range of equipment which is available for members to borrow.
