Relaxing in Hanmer Springs

Day 4: Hanmer Springs (Tues 25th Sept)

I am writing this from a lovely cafe overlooking Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools (they have free wi-fi!). We have spent the morning in the pools and just had lunch at the cafe. We have loved our time at the pools – and have a return pass so we can come back tomorrow! Amazingly we mostly slept through the night too, and seem to have already adjusted to the time difference incredibly well. We are hoping for some mini golf fun later, and also plan to post some more pictures of the pools when I have the photos off my camera. The two photos we have here were taken by people at the pools.

Day 4 highlights:

  • Waking up in our wonderful house to the stunning view.
  • Relaxing in the thermal pools in the sunshine – there are 12 different ones, including aqua therapy ones, rock pools (with minerals) and super hot (and smelly!) sulphur ones.
  • Chatting to the photography guy at the pool who basically offered me a job taking pictures here! As great as that would be we have a fab holiday planned first, but it was just really good to know just chatting to people can bring up all sorts of opportunities!

I will post again when I can – as we will try and find free wi-fi where possible. Off to play mini golf! 🙂
