Hanmer is one of those old favourite spots as we have had some epic family reunions here. Add the hot pools and it doesn’t get any better so we were quite looking forward to popping in for a night on our way up to Nelson.

We arrived in perfect weather having come through from Oxford bang on lunch time.
We managed to get a park in the main street by the trees and set out for somewhere to eat. We settled on a Home made pie from a Kiosk on the corner. Yum!
The last time we were here was about 4 – 5 years ago and there seemed to be more shops and buildings than there was last time we were here. The place has grown!
We didn’t really have time for a swim this time and after an hour of checking out shops, we headed back to the NZMCA park by the river.
There was only two other vans there when we arrived but by 6, that had doubled. Its always nice having a few around you in a semi rural place.
There is a dump station just up the road a few k’s and although Hanmer is 7 odd k’s away, its a fun place to be.
