Field Trips and NPSNZ Events

Our society organizes a variety of field trips for members. Nearly every month we run either a day trip or a weekend trip to some locality around the South Island. Our typical weekend trips are within a few hours of Christchurch. However, we do organize long weekend trips farther a-field. Past trips have include photographing autumn colours around Hanmer, sunflowers down at Oamaru, adventures on the West Coast, and romping around Canterbury with cameras in hand.For more information on any of our trips please click the links in the schedule below.

Field trips are a key activity of the NPSNZ and we encourage members to join a trip and enjoy a day or weekend away with like minded enthusiasts. Many of the images on this site were made on field trips. Mid week trips are run on the 4th Wednesday of the month.
