Christchurch people have gone to heal and relax at the hot springs at Hanmer since the 1880s. The appeal of soaking in hot water in the wilderness has never dimmed and today the complex has multiple pools, hydroslides, and cold pools for summer. There are also extensive mountain bike and walking trails through the old Forestry Service forest and on the St James Cycle Trail.
Next door, Pegasus has a bit of everything: choose from a leisurely round of golf on the parklands golf course, a visit to beautifully replanted wetlands, extensive walking and mountain bike trails or swimming at the surf beach in Pegasus Bay.
