Hurunui Tourism

District tourism organisation promoting the South Island’s Hurunui region, a picturesque region encompassing endless sandy coastlines, historic villages, New Zealand’s alpine spa village Hanmer Springs and Christchurch’s wine region, Waipara Valley.


Situated just a 40-minute drive from Christchurch, the Hurunui is a stunning place with a range of must-see attractions. Our most popular destination is Hanmer Springs – a pretty alpine village set amid towering mountains and forests. The offering here is huge – including the multi-million dollar Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa featuring New Zealand’s only aquatic thrill ride, the SuperBowl. There’s a large range of tourism activities here along with boutique shopping, excellent eateries and accommodation for every budget.
The Waipara Valley is one of New Zealand’s premier wine regions with 74 vineyards and four unforgettable winery restaurants.
The best way to explore the Hurunui is by road via Alpine Pacific Triangle touring route.
