Hanmer Springs is the perfect place to escape for a family holiday with the children - or a mid-week escape to have some quiet time to yourself.
Around the village and beyond there are loads of things to keep the family entertained, from several mini golf options, the Amazing Maze, the farm park, Grand Tourer bikes to cycle around the village together and so much more.
Plus there are plenty of options for café dining, shopping and of course “getting wet” at the Hot Pools and in the woodfired hot tubs at Hanmer TOP 10.
If you are feeling adventurous, you can go white water rafting or jetboating with one of the local operators, or book in for a horse trek with Hanmer Horse Treks to see the countryside at a more relaxed pace.
On route to Hanmer you'll discover plenty of wineries where you can sample and stock up on supplies of some of New Zealand’s best wines, and in the village itself there are plenty of places to stock up on food supplies to keep the family well fed.
Markets are held on Saturday mornings throughout the year, giving you a chance to sample some of the best offerings of local food and crafts.
The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, especially if you are able to visit away from the weekends. We recommend planning your break to Hanmer ahead of time to ensure you can book your accommodation and enjoy the family holiday you can all enjoy to the full.
