Full description
Discover Hanmer Springs, a resort town known for its natural hot pools only 90 minutes from Christchurch. Soak in the famous, mineral-rich waters in thermal pools surrounded by native gardens with mountain vistas.

The water in the thermal pools starts as snow and rain falling on the Hanmer Springs mountains almost 180 years ago. It seeps into the Greywacke basement rock and comes to rest in a reservoir some 2 kilometers underground, where it is warmed by heat radiating from the earth’s core. So sit back, relax, and enjoy what nature created all those years ago. 

Indulge in a range of pools, including rock pools, soothing sulphur pools, and array of water jets and bubbles. Act like a kid with an activity pool, lap pool, lazy river, water slides, garden picnic areas, and the Tea Kiosk Cafe & Grill.

By booking your tickets in advance, you can drop in at any time and avoid the disappointment of getting turned away, especially during the pool’s busy weekends.
