Located in the east of New Zealand's South Island, the Hurunui is an incredible place. From rugged coastlines and sandy beaches to inland alpine villages and lush green forests - the natural beauty of the area is overwhelming. 


The jewel in its crown is the alpine spa village of Hanmer Springs, a relaxing and tranquil spot with all of the best New Zealand has to offer - from stunning scenery to adrenalin filled activities (including bungy jumping!).

The village is also home to the country's largest natural thermal pools complex an exceptionally popular attraction. Add to that, the internationally renowned wine region Waipara Valley, and the Hurunui becomes a destination you cannot miss. 

Best of all, the area is rich in accommodation, activities and eateries and starts just a 45 minute drive from Christchurch.
