Regular monthly day hikes throughout the year. If you have any requests or suggestions, please get in contact.
These hikes will be accessable via public transport around the wellington region.
We will be meeting at the Appleton Park, near the Karori Tunnel, and Zealandia at 10am.
We will be walking up the Zealandia fenceline, to the Brooklyn Wind Turbine and follow the ridgeline to Hawkens Hill, and through the hills out to Red-rocks.
Depending on time and energy, we can also grab fish and chips on the beach in Island Bay. Which is near the bus stop back to town.

Come down to Island Bay to be involved with some great projects that ensure Wellington continues to be an awesome habitat for animals and people alike!
- 10am - We'll meet at Paekawakawa reserve, just off Island Bay parade, to join Conservation Volunteers in a tree-planting workshop. All tools will be provided, just wear your boots and bring a packed lunch. The bee will last roughly 3 hours
- 2:30pm - Marine experts from Friends of Taputeranga will meet us on the beach to take us rock-pooling around the reserve. Wear toggs on the day, bring a towel and maybe a beanie. You will get wet!
Everyone, take lots of pictures so we can submit a couple on behalf of VUWTC to the iNaturalist City Nature Challenge 2021! Wellington has an abundance of nature within it and around it, even more remarkable being a capital city. Let's do her proud and get some awesome snaps!
...And lets all grab a beer after!

As always on Wednesday, we go to Hangdog out in Petone to go bouldering and climbing. We meet at 6 pm at hunter carpark. No skill or equipment needed. Bring $16 for your entry and a few coins for your drivers.
Paying a gold coin to the driver is important as they need to pay for gas otherwise they will just stop offering and we all lose.
Spaces are limited, so quick, get amongst. if it is full, sign up anyways, there might be some more spots becoming available during the day.
If you are able to provide a car please do, as the more the merrier and we can only carpool if we have cars, otherwise, trains are $11 each
Here is a map of the kelburn campus to help you find the Hunter Carpark. Map reference 24h.

Kind of a different trip
Penn Creek is one of the huts that VUWTC supposedly looks after. I want to check it out, clean it up a bit, and get a feel for the different routes to it. Will bring a bit of maintenance stuff. If people feel inclined to explore a pretty unused (neglected??) track and spend a few hours giving the hut some loving then this for you.
I think the track is a bit sketch honestly. Parts of this trip might be fairly tricky. We might need to do some track maintenance, so will bring machetes, ropes and orange markers. We'll see ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Probably weather dependent. Also 6 bunks, so if there are more of us than that we'll bring a tent.
More info to come, and more precise plans too (pretty flexible, could be a one night or a two night trip). Keep an ear out!
Update - please especially come if you can bring a car
