Another thermal spring destination

Hanmer Springs, is the name of this Alpine town, and the name of the Springs.

Considered one of New Zealand's favourite retreats, Hanmer Springs is a

picturesque alpine village situated in a high country basin 385m above

sea level.

Hanmer Springs has over 50km of forest tracks with many designed for

light/easy walking, the thermal pools, beauty and massage treatments,

scenic flights, mini golf, professional golf course and much more.

Hanmer action comes in a variety of modes from jet boating on the

Waiau river to horse trekking, mountain biking, ski-ing and rock-climbing to

name just a few!

Hanmer Springs is a wonderful year round destination with amazing

colour, we just missed the best Autumn Colours!

It is also close to the Hanmer Springs ski area and the Mt Lyford ski area.

The Lewis Pass travels through the Lewis Pass National Park, and this is a

very pretty drive to do.

HANMER SPRINGS WAS LOVELY! creating a pictorial travelling route for .

    Sounds delightful! nice that you could travel that way; which is probably "THE" only way to go in that area.
