Hanmer Springs Activities

If you have limited time in Hanmer Springs, there are a number of activities that can be undertaken that will cost you nothing but will reward you greatly, and do not take too much time.  These include:

  • Take a walk up Conical Hill for fantastic views across the Hanmer Basin and surrounds.  The lookout at the top of Conical Hill can be seen from your Apartment patio at about 2 o’clock.  The return walk will take around 30 – 40 minutes if you drive to the track start. 

  • For those who prefer a longer walk, about half way down on your return from Connical Hill summit, look for the side track that is signposted the Majuba Walk.  This joins the Woodland Trail to Squirrel Lake.  A lovely area to explore.

  • If you have less time or want a less strenuous walk, drive to the Brooke Dawson Park and have a stroll along the Dog Stream Trail.

    • These walks are detailed on the Hanmer Springs Map.  If there is not one of these in your Studio, pick one up from reception

  • Mountain Biking.  There are many mountain bike trails around the area requiring different levels of fitness and expertise.  A map of the mountain bike trails is available from the Information Centre at the Hot Springs complex. 
    We have a men’s and ladies mountain bike here that can be used free of charge.

  • Take time to walk around our lovely gardens.  These are our gardens, but also your gardens while you stay with us.  It is a very relaxing experience.  Take as many photos as you want as a reminder of your stay with us.

  • Drive to the top of Jacks Pass for fantastic views of the Hanmer Basin and down the other side to the Clarence River.  For those of you who are more energetic, park your car at the pass and walk to the top of either Mt Isobel or Mt Dunblane.  Allow a few hours for this.  You will need to be fit!

  • Sit outside your Studio Apartment, at the Garden Courtyard or in the Pergola on hot days with a coffee, tea or a glass of wine.  Appreciate the views and relax.

There other activities that you will need to pay for, but will also be rewarding experiences:

  • The Golf Course is just down the road from us.  Carts may be hired.  Forgotten your golf clubs?  No problem.  We are happy for you to borrow ours. 

  • The Pools.  Do not miss a soak in the world renowned Hanmer Hot Spring Pools.  For your convenience there are pool towels in a bag in your wardrobe.  After you have used these, please leave them outside your Studio so we know to replace them if you want another soak.
