We like you to do some trips with us before joining, so that you can get to know us, and we can get to know you.

To join the Over Forties Tramping Club Inc you must complete three qualifying club day trips to the leader’s satisfaction within three months and pay an entry fee of $30.

For three months you will be sent Club newsletters which list the Wednesday, Sunday and Saturday day tramp options with leaders’ names, phone numbers and meeting places. Easier trips are listed first.


Step 1:

Contact the Membership Officer, who will obtain your address so that newsletters and an application form will be sent to you.

Step 2:

Choose and complete three qualifying day tramps from the newsletter, within three months. For these three trips, you must contact the leader before the trip to let them know you are coming and for information about the suitability of the tramp for your fitness level. You are advised to choose easier qualifying trips initially to build up your fitness.

Take the application form with you on each tramp and show it to the leader prior to the start of the trip. After you have successfully completed the tramp, the leader will then sign the form.

Step 3:

When you have done your three qualifying trips to the leaders’ satisfaction and within three months of your first trip, send the application form and $30 joining fee to the Membership Officer. The joining fee can be direct credited to our account.

Your application will be considered by the committee and, on approval, the Club handbook, Safety in the Mountains, a cloth club badge, a membership list and the password to the web site will be forwarded to you together with an invoice for your subscription.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the membership officer or any committee member.
