Hanmer Springs



Located a 90-minute drive from Christchurch in New Zealand’s South Island, Hanmer Springs is a quaint village town located in the rolling hills of Canterbury’s wine region.

Best known for its award-winning Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa, Hanmer Springs is the perfect place for relaxation and a bit of pampering - as well as a family fun-fueled week of adventure.

Visit the ski slopes in the surrounding areas, have a go at mini-golfing, go white water rafting down the Waiau River, get wet while jet boating, race the kids down the mountain on a BMX bike, or explore the stunning surrounding areas on a horse - just to name a few.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, take a leap of faith and go bungee jumping off the 135-year old Waiau Ferry Bridge.

A popular destination for both local and international travelers, there are a myriad of accommodation options to choose from, from hostels, to boutique hotels, to holiday parks and campsites, to luxury hotels.
