If in Hanmer you must try the pools at night,great sights with clear air and cool temperatures the lights show off a great view of steam rising up very romantic.

A great selection of thermal pools for all ages. Given the alpine environment would be good if there was a cold plunge pool available too (cryotherapy). Sulphur pools especially good and apparently the only ones not tainted with chlorine

This is a bit like a theme park, but is absolutely a must do. Great for all ages. The cafe offers good food and you can also bring in your own snacks (just no glass items).

Snow on the mountains, lying in a hot pool; yes that's the truth, honest! A sprinkling of snow, close to zero C, but mmm.. Lots of pools to wallow in and relax. Even one to swim in too. It's around $24 to get in once,...More
