Hanmer Springs

Hot Springs, lunch and an A-mazing Adventure

sunny 24 °C

We were a little late getting started today but eventually got ourselves organised enough to head about 90 minutes up the road to a little town called Hanmer Springs, like everywhere in this beautiful country.. the view was amazing the whole way there and the roads are brilliant to drive on.

Some of the highlights of the drive were the scenery of course and there was some road works going on and they had this little vehicle called the Pilot Vehicle took guided you through the road works.. we thought this was hilarious because there was no where else you could go so couldn't work out the need for that but made us realise that council workers are the same all over the world :)
We arrive at Hanmer Springs and find a park and head to a cafe for something to eat. We discover a cute little cafe called Mr Mumbles and order a very yummy lunch.. for the foodies out there.. I had Sundried Tomato, Spinach and Chicken Filo and Salad, Savannah had lasagne, Rhett - Fish and Chips and I can't remember what Gary had LOL but it was all delicious!

We then headed to the hot springs, where we changed into our togs and soaked in the water, they had a water slide as well so the kids went on that and Rhett soon made friends with an american boy and they hung out for the good part of an hour while we sampled all the different hot springs ranging in temperature from 21 - 41 degrees.. it was very relaxing and a little dehydrating!

I would have liked to have used the spa and got a massage or something but there was no time and so we headed out of the Springs and had a look at a couple of the gift shops and then went to the A-Maz-n golf where we rushed through a maze with two teams the boys vs girls.. it was a pretty cool set up and the kids loved it
