Parawai Tramping Club

Kapiti Island

The club runs trips to Kapiti Island as volunteer working parties for DOC (Department of Conservation).

Generally DOC will provide accommodation which has full kitchen facilties and bunks. DOC will also subsidise the food so the evening meal is usually organised on a group basis. You only need to take a sleeping bag, pillow slip, towel, food for breakfasts and lunch, in addition to your own personal items.

Because the island is a sanctuary, your gear will need to be inspected before boarding the boat for weeds, seeds and to make sure no errant mice have got into your pack. Any food must be in sealed container(s).

People who are planning to join a club trip to Kapiti Island must first read the the Information for Volunteers document.
