Set in a breathtaking natural landscape, surrounded by forests and mountains, the award-winning Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa offers visitors a wide range of experiences, from soothing indulgence to exciting family fun.

The Thermal Pools & Spa has a range of pools - twelve open-air thermal pools, three sulphur pools and six private indoor thermal pools, as well as a sauna/steam room.  Our new freshwater, heated swimming pool has “resort style” walk-in beach access and a “Lazy River”. Our popular family activity area of water slides, water toys and picnic area has been enhanced with the addition of the AquaPlay Area and the impressive SuperBowl.

And with a bounteous supply of the thermally heated spring water, the pools range in temperature from 28-42° Celsius - perfect for soothing away aches and pains or for just unwinding. The Hanmer Springs geothermal water is drawn from a bore adjacent to the reserve complex, providing natural water of the highest quality.

To complete the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa experience, visitors can also enjoy a range of massage and beauty treatments from the trained professionals at The Spa. These include Swiss and sports massage, detoxifying body wraps and aromatic facials.

The Garden House Café, which serves excellent food and wines - from light lunches to a la carte evening dining - is the perfect place to take time out. Situated in the Thermal Pools complex, the café is also a novel venue for functions, and events.

Situated in the heart of the Hanmer Springs Alpine Village, the Thermal Pools are within easy walking distance of a full range of accommodation, shops, a golf course and other amenities.

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa is open from 10am-9pm daily (except Christmas Day).

  • Now that I’m reaching the later years in my twenties it feels like it’s time to make some serious decisions (and have some serious fun) before my life becomes all about satisfying my parent’s wishes of paying the mortgage and raising their grand-kids. I started by making a list of the things I really want to do before I hit 30… and yesterday I ticked the first one off!"
