Starting from a simple bathing pool with a fence in the 1850s, the pools have grown to a multi-million dollar, award-winning attraction that pulls in more than half a million visitors a year.
The natural thermal waters are key to the complex's success and are drawn from a bore adjacent to the pools.
Their therapeutic qualities are carefully monitored and left as natural as possible so the waters are mineral rich.
We are a major contributor to the Hurunui economy and one of the region's large employers.
The pools' management team work closely with the owner, the Hurunui District Council, and also alongside business owners in Hanmer Springs to ensure the village is a thriving tourism destination drawing increasing numbers of visitors year after year.
