Hanmer Springs: an idyllic village in New Zealand

Hanmer Springs is an idyllic village in New Zealand, situated at the foot of the Southern Alps. The village was established on the hot, all-natural geothermal springs, which gush forward with pure snow water. Originally a sanitorium hot-spot in the 1920s, the Springs have been refined into a range of aqua pools for all ages, with thermal, sulphur and indoor pools. This is also where the Wallabies (the Australian rugby team) will be staying during a weekend of rest and relaxation during the upcoming Rugby World Cup. They couldn’t have chosen a better spot to unwind.
