Improvements since last visit (in early 2019)

Smooth entry with the book me ticket. Enjoyed the hot springs. Children's slides have improved since last visit (they have been moved next to the family pool). Also like it that hydroslides are now included in the price. Need a willing second person for next time to try the raft rides.

„ Winter warmer”

Visited Hanmer Spring after years and invited my German friends to the hot pools . Just a perfect night after being 4 days on the road . Great place to chill n relax and warm up the bones in the steamy winter wonderland. The low season gave up heaps of space and privacy in the pools ;)
