Quieter than the daytime although still quite busy, the pools are a great way to unwind after the drive to Hanmer. Our hotel provided fluffy towels to take. Just a brief stroll from our hotel

We planned hanmer springs as one of our last locations for our holiday and it was a good choice. We spent the whole day relaxing in the hot springs going between all the different pools and temperature (36-42 Celcius).

Hi, the freshwater pool is 25 metres long. Just note that we have one lane roped off for lap swimming most days - the exceptions are public holidays (and the weekend attached to public holidays), and school holidays.
