We had a refreshing and entertaining walk in the forest. There are many different options for walking or mountain biking with the different paths clearly marked, as are the different trees etc.

Forest amble with the 6 year old was great. An easy 25 min stroll and the wooden sculptures were very cool. Well worth a stroll

Great way to spend about 30min on a easy about 1km walk to look at some amazing sculptures spread among the forest.Great for kids as it’s easy to walk and interesting to find the sculptures.you can even take the dog!

We did the Forest Amble walk, which has the excellent wood sculptures. An easy, ordinary walk through the forest, but pleasant enough. The sculptures make it a bit more interesting. The dog at the entrance to the walk is particularly good.
We also did the Woodland Walk on the other side of the road. Pleasant enough. Got a bit confused over where it went and ended up on a part which was obviously a mountain bike trail. There are a lot of trails for mountain bikes as well as walking paths in this area.
It had been many years since we were last in Hanmer Springs. Not being into the spa pools, the walks were really the only thing to do, but it was a pleasant enough day trip from Christchurch.

An easy walk around a basically flat track with the fun of the wooden statues to spot on the way. We were there as an older couple and enjoyed it but it would be even better with children.

Beautiful spot to enjoy some nature. It wasn’t too busy while I was here so was very peaceful. A couple different tracks to pick from that range from 30 minutes to hours long.

I recommend doing a hike here before going to the thermal pools
