We found the price good for a family, and had good options for kids up the back end of the grounds. We felt a little uncomfortable in some of the other pools so found ourselves more in the colder pools in the kids area to avoid the looks of the adults. We tried very hard to keep our kids quiet...

Had a great time to relax and spend time with my loved one. Worth spending time with friends and family. They have picnic areas so no problems if you get hungry. :) there are a lot of parking spaces everywhere.

Great place to spend the whole day. Whether you are on your own or with a family or group this is the place to visit in Hanmer Springs. Variety of pools set throughout the complex. Some are adults only. Swimming pool. Lazy River. Kids area and slides. Take a picnic or eat at the excellent café on site.

First thing in the morning before too busy is a great time to go. Well organised clean operation. Always first on the list for Hanmer

I have been to Hamner Spring many times over the years but last time I was there I was really impressed. Everything was clean, the pools were great and it was quiet ( we went after 6 pm each night and it was very atmospheric and beautiful ). Perhaps it was because we went mid week and in winter that...

I have been to the hot springs many times. Generally it is a great place to come and soak for a couple of hours and get rid of any stress and strain or achy muscles. As with any long serving high-volume attraction - it is slightly run down and not as "lush" as it probably once was. The changing rooms... More

Love the pools here. Was a shame the photographer kept walking past us but never asked us if he could take photos. Would have loved some photos.

This was the whole point of our trip, and it was well worth it. There are a variety of hot springs and at different temperatures. You can enjoy a multitude of packages. We took the opportunity to have a private thermal pool time which also gives you access to the other pools. When you pay for a private pool, an... More

Hot pools were relaxing, plenty of facilities for all ages, flumes and pools to keep children happy and lots of spa pools for adults too.

These hot pools have long been a drawcard for Hanmer - they've had a make-over and are looking really good. The private pools are very nice, but it gets very hot, so I'd recommend the outdoor pools as a first option. Many of them are adults only, and offer a range of temperatures and therapeutic cures.
