“I just love love love the forest!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The forest is a must do activity - summer and winter. We did the forest journey twice on a recent weekend in Hanmer.

The trees are just so awesome. It's sheltered from the wind in winter and the sun in summer. Easy, flat paths to walk on.

Just a beautiful place to be.

“Lovely Walks”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Great, great and great. Fantastic scenic walks and great walk length... something for everyone! Woodland Walk and Forest Walk are great hour long strolls, but if your pushed for time, try the Forest Amble.
