Hanmer Springs

Hanmer Springs

Hanmer Springs is a small quaint little town in the Canterbury region of the South Island of New Zealand. The town is named after an owner of Hawkeswood Station - Thomas Hanmer. Hawkeswood Station  is near the Conway river, built during the 1850s. It  is located 40 miles southwest of Kaikoura in the Hurunui District and 80 miles northwest of Christchurch. The town lies on a minor road 5 miles north of State Highway 7, the northern route between Christchurch and the West Coast via Lewis Pass. The township resides at the base of Conical Hill. The resident population is approximately 840.

Hanmer Springs has become a very popular tourist destination, and the town's population swells during the holiday season. If you dare, Bungee jumping, mountain biking, jet boating, and bush hiking are common tourist activities, and there is a small airline service available for the viewing of the town's beautiful alpine surroundings. A Visitor Information Centre is located next to the must see hot springs provides you with essential information about the area and booking facilities for transport. Trampers can gather weather information for you, maps and guidance from the Department of Conservation. Budget accommodation here also includes a brand new Youth Hostel.
