Thinking of Joining OUTC? – What to bring to NZ

Are you coming on exchange or flying down to Otago and wanting to join OUTC? If yes, then the next question is what shall I bring in my already full pack!?

Have a look at the gear we hire out to club members, once you’ve joined the club then you can hire out those items for your tramping or rock climbing trips.

So that narrows down for you to bring personal items like walking boots, a waterproof jacket, sleeping bag and warm clothing (no cotton).  All these items are essential for OUTC trips (some easier walks can be done in good trainers).

Rock climbers bring your shoes!!! There are lots of good and local outdoor crags in Dunedin, perfect for getting out for a morning or evening climb before or after lectures. So bring your climbing gear! 😀 If you’re struggling to fit everything into your suitcase, again, check out the gear that you could hire out if you’re an OUTC member, though we don’t have shoes, so definitely bring them.

See you guys in O-Week!



OUTC President
