A shot of the Hanmer Springs freshwater pool complex just after opening time.

Not many there yet but it was fairly buzzing later in the day when the air temperature reached 23 oC – even with a hint of snow still on the mountains. But the air temperature doesn’t really matter at all as the water is warm – the pool temperatures vary from 28 to 42 oC.

This is the active area for kids, dads and adventurous mums. The slides are very popular of course, but there are also many quieter rock pools areas and several superb thermal relaxation pools, some with massage jets to soothe any aches and pains.

A perfect place for everyone to relax and unwind ………………. unfortunately we headed back home today, but will return here soon 🙂
