Where is it?
Hanmer Springs is a popular holiday destination just an hour and a half’s drive from the South Island’s main city of Christchurch and nearest international airport. It boasts great scenery, walking and mountain-biking tracks, shops, restaurants, cafes, library (with internet) a golf-course, cycle-hire, plus the pool complex which includes a beauty day-spa.
The town is naturally beautiful, with mountains on all sides, and threaded with a couple of streams, and rivers. The Amuri ski-field is Hanmer’s closest, although Mt Lyford is another field just an hour from the cottage.
Hanmer Spings has proven itself to be a year-round destination, equally popular in summer and winter. Autumn here is stunning also, as the leaves dramatically change colour. It is also a perfect spot to base one-self for exploring the stunning wilderness areas of the upper South Island. Mountains, lakes, forest and coastline are all at your doorstep.
