Hanmer Springs

Hanmer Springs is a small alpine resort in the Canterbury region about 110km from Christchurch (a 90 minute drive away). It has been renowned for its thermal waters for over one hundred years and the hot springs are a hugely popular destination for tourists and locals all year round.

The thermal reserve at Hanmer Springs has been developed to include a spa (beauty and spa treatments), large water play area for children, water slides, rockpools and pools of varying temperatures. They are open all year round and offer a very-welcome and relaxing experience after more strenuous activities such as horse trekking, hiking, mountain biking and skiing (at the Hanmer Springs and Mount Lyford skifields). more

The roads and forests around the township can be explored by bike or on foot with many pathways suitable for families with younger children. Older adrenalin seekers can enjoy bungy jumping, jet boating, kayaking, white-water rafting and 4WD off-road safaris through the surrounding high country.

Accommodation in and around Hanmer Springs is plentiful with campgrounds, backpackers, bed and breakfast accommodation, holiday home and hotel options. Hanmer can get busy in peak seasons and over school and bank holiday weekends, so book early and pack with unpredictable mountain weather in mind.
