Make the most of summer in Hanmer Springs

No matter the weather, it's always a good time to relax, soak or play at Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa. The fun doesn't just stop at the pools, slides and spa, though. There's plenty to do throughout summer in Hanmer Springs. Here's a few of our top picks of what to do when you come to visit!

Take a wander among the trees

Hanmer Springs has plenty of scenic walking or tramping tracks waiting for you to explore. Dog Stream Reserve is an ideal track for families, especially if you’re pushing an off-road stroller or if the kids want to ride their bikes. The iconic Conical Hill walk's zig-zag trail takes some of the strain out of climbing the steep hill, and the summit provides the perfect place to relax with a picnic before making the return journey down.
