Welcome to the OTMC

Welcome to the OTMC

The Otago Tramping and Mountaineering Club (OTMC) is based in Dunedin, New Zealand. We organise regular meetings and tramping trips for all ages and abilities primarily in the lower South Island of New Zealand.

The OTMC is an ideal place for people who have enjoyed some of the great walks, like the Milford, Routeburn and Kepler, and are wondering what's next. The club provides both advice and companions to allow people to enjoy our wonderful hills and mountains with confidence and safety.

The Otago Tramping Club was formed in Dunedin on the 23rd of August, 1923. Ever since then the club has promoted and participated in many types of outdoor recreation activities, with our main activity still being tramping.

We are fortunate in Dunedin / Otago to have a wide variety of excellent tramping country within easy reach. A lot of our day trips visit the Silver Peaks Scenic Reserve, to the north of Dunedin.

This site will tell you what you need to know about the OTMC, and a little about tramping in general. We welcome new members to all the OTMC's activities - the easiest way to find more out about us to come along to one of our meetings. We hold weekly meetings nearly every Thursday evening - Click here for more information.
