We had been driving for 4 hours and were cold and tired (and old with hip, frozen shoulder and sprained wrist injuries sustained skiing) and so were overjoyed to find the council run pools still open at 7.55(til 9) AND they had womens costumes for rent. I asked for a 14 & the young girl held up a very well... More

Not a bad way to spend a couple hours in Hanmer. My wife and I pool hopped for a couple hours and that was plenty for us. We had the good fortune of having it snow while we were there which was really cool. Not rushing back to do it again, but glad we did it.

My husband and I spent a couple of hours pool hopping! The Aquatherapy pools in the centre were the best, perfect temperature and lots of bubbles! The sulphur pools were too hot and smelly to stay in there too long! My best advice is to take slip on shoes to move from pool to pool! The concrete is freezing! Highlight... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day pass to the thermal pools. Having a two day pass was really good as we went during the day & at night while fitting in other activities in between. There is a pool for everyone & we all had our favorite's. Kids loved the slides but did get cold quickly waiting at the top.... More

Popped along with the family in winter and after buying entrance tickets we realized that the lockers were a $2 coin only, so all the way back out we had to go to get change. Then we found the Male Change sheds were being renovated and had to walk to the other side of the park to get changed. The... More

We travelled to Hanmer Springs especially to experience these Hot pools. Upon arrival just after lunch time we could see the town was full of day travellers, camper vans, tourists & families. So we decided to stay the night & go to the hot pools later on after dinner once the crowds had died down. Luckily we had the foresight... More

This was a great half day experience. The skin feels so soft and rejuvenated afterwards. It was a bit expensive at $20 each just for shared thermal pools. Great little cafés around the area too. You really can spend a day in the area.

Nice & relaxing & plenty of pools to choose from also able to get good food & drink from Cafe. The men's changing rooms were a bit limited as they were updating some of them.

Wrongly accused of hooliganism of a previous group. Little respect was shown for us. What a day really. Best $20 i have ever spent
