We're convinced Hanmer Springs has the best backyard in New Zealand. Come and explore our beautiful alpine village located 1.5 hours north of Christchurch.

With just 5 minutes walk to the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools, day spa, cafes, restaurants and boutique shops, the day is all yours - in fact we suggest you stay at least two nights to truly enjoy our piece of paradise. Bike the trails, walk the forest and discover our giant wooden sculptures and the enchanted woodland with fairy doors; or just soak in our on-site wood-fired hot tubs while enjoying the tranquility of our Hanmer Springs Holiday Park. The main attraction in our beautiful village is our award-winning Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa but it doesn't stop there... You will never be short of something to do from markets, galleries, waterslides, jetboat rides and quadbike trips. Try your hand at mini golf, go fishing or maybe even skiing. We have it all here for you; or just lie back and relax while stargazing.

Who doesn't need a visit to the Lolly Pot or Fudge Shop? We even have a Toy Shop in town and some of the best sushi around... all this while the ladies can check out the fantastic retail shops. We really do think we have it all in Hanmer Springs!

Back at our Hanmer Springs Holiday Park you can kick back and relax with a fresh espresso coffee while you wait for your locally made gourmet pizza to cook in our on-site pizza oven. Keep the kids happy on our fun carts, on the jumping pillow or on our giant digger in the sandpit. There's space for the kids and for you to enjoy the landscape and mountains whilst sitting amongst our beech and native plantings.

Book a on-site wood-fired hot tub of your own and soak up the tranquility with a well-deserved rest; after all, that is what Hanmer Springs is all about.

Amazing. Just Book!

Could not rate the place more highly. The staff are sooo friendly and the location and facilities top notch. Felt super-safe as a solo traveller. Got great recommendations daily on what to do and as a bonus, they have great coffee...

Wood-fired hot tubs are fantastic! You get a nice basket with towels, water and glasses to use... Thanks to the entire team, you have a great thing going on here... I'm already planning the next trip with friends.

Absolutely awesome campground! Was going to stay one night in our campervan but stayed for two and wished we had time to stay longer. Super friendly greeting at the office by a cheerful man who was very helpful with our request for a sunny parking space. 5-star shower/toilet block at our end of the campground and a happy cleaning team doing a great job. Fabulously clean kitchen. Walking distance to the shops. And they have hot pools on-site. Best campground on our month long tour of the South Island

If we could give this caravan park a score of 20+ then this caravan park would win hands down. The experience starts at check in and just gets better. The sites are spacious, and the amenities without a doubt the best I have ever seen. From wood fired hot tubs to a pizza oven and enough activities to keep the children entertained for hours this place has it all. TOP MARKS.
