What to do

You can just relax in peace and quiet and enjoy the fresh air, mountain panoramas, and watch our Arapawa black sheep grazing under a big sky. You can dine at your cottage or dine out at the many Hanmer Springs cafes and restaurants. You can enjoy passive pastimes such as golf, forest walks, thermal pools, spa treatment and massage, sauna and steam-rooms. Or you can participate in more invigorating activities such as mountain biking, horse treks, white water rafting, jet-boat rides, helicopter flights, quad bike fun, bungy jumping, skiing and snowboarding.
