“Dog Stream Waterfall Track”
Review of Hanmer Forest

This took us 4 hrs (return). It is a very tall waterfall that you can walk right too, and has a small pool. The last 20 mins are quite interesting though. Rocky, steep and had me a little scared. I saw some older people going up with walking sticks and wondered how they would manage. We hadn't meant on such a long walk the first day but it was well worth it.

Mix of shade and sunny; narrow tracks, well formed tracks and logging roads. Pleasant mix of short and longer tracks.
Very easy access from the village

If your in town you have to spend an hour or so walking though the forrest. What a great way to relax and get a bit of exercise at the same time .

So many walks and mountain bike tracks to choose from. All well maintained. I go to Hanmer Springs for the walking tracks and my partner goes for the hot pools. Maps are available from the Information Center and worth getting. My favorite walk is along the stream behind the town. Went there this morning and did not see anyone else. It was shaded, peaceful and smelt so fresh. There are many walks up hills and through pine forests as well and many Mountain bike tracks for all levels. So take your walking shoes and a bike!
