Things To Do

Hanmer Springs is a great year round destination for the whole family, groups and schools. Whether you want to relax in the thermal pools, giant water slides, ski the Hanmer ski-field in winter, go bungy jumping, jet-boating or quad-biking, tramp to the waterfall or Mt Isobel, ride the numerous mountain biking trails straight out of the Forest campgrounds, or shop in our beautiful boutique shops we have it all!
