Beautiful alpine walk up to the waterfall. Recommend good footwear for the descent. If we had more time we would have loved to have done Mt Isobel as well! Only took us two hours 20 minutes instead of the signposted three.

We enjoyed the beautiful Amble walk in the Hanmer Forest in Jollies Pass Road. It was an easy walk where you come across the sculptures nestle in amongst the trees. The birdsong and forest smells a great way to enjoy the whole experience.

This is a lovely walk through forest, beside and over streams on bridges. There are open green spaces and lovely well kept winding pathways. Very calming. Enjoy and breath the air.

One of the main reasons we come to Hanmer. Excellent biking trails very well signposted. Ability levels all catered for and all accessed right from the village. Free fun for every age group.
