Parawai Tramping Club

50 Years of Tramping

The Parawai Tramping club had its first meeting in July 1969 and this year we are celebrating 50 years of tramping by the club.
We invite past and present members to help us celebrate this jubilee at our 50th Birthday Party and to attend the activities throughout the weekend.

Gather at Parawai Lodge at Otaki Forks in the evening.
Those that want to can stay overnight!

In the evening there will be a catered birthday dinner and cutting of the Jubilee Cake.
Sunday 10 November

More details about these activities will be sent to people closer to the event.


The Friday night and Sunday activities are “pay your own way” and the cost of the Saturday function is $60 per person.
