Hanmer Springs General Information

What the South Island of New Zealand lacks in population, it more than makes up for in extraordinary scenery, fantastical landscapes and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The South Island, after all, is the home of Westland Tai Poutini National Park, Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park and Fiordland National Park, to name a few notable UNESCO gems. Add other significant South Island stops like the Central Otago wine region, Franz Josef and Fox glaciers, and beautiful towns of Dunedin and Christchurch and indeed, the bottom half of New Zealand offers the promise of a complete holiday.

One important point of interest to consider on the South Island is the tidy hamlet of Hanmer Springs. For well over a century now, the Canterbury town has been a popular alpine resort destination. The recently renovated and expanded Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa complex now includes a spacious, state-of-the-art spa, aqua therapy geothermal pools and play areas for children. Hanmer Springs also contains a beautiful 18 hole golf course and come winter, visitors can hit the slopes of Mount Lyford and th Hanmer Springs Ski Area.
