I love this place, and prefer it to Hanmer Springs as there are less screaming children. It's best to go at sunset and stay until night time, there are lovely views and the night sky reserve above allows for some very romantic star gazing.More

Spectacular snow capped mountains, with various pools ranging in various temperatures, relax in the pool with a bottle of water.

Is it real spring warm water? Or just heated by machine or in other ways?

hi Vicky, I believe that this is just heated not a natural hot spring.

Is it required to book beforehand online or is it safe just to show up and tickets will be available? (cause I'm not sure exactly which day I will make it, so don't want to book yet?)

Absolutely no need, unless your a larger party in which case some heads-up might be appriciated. It's a large pooling area so space isn't really a problem anyway :)
