Hanmer Forest

Hanmer Forest

The exotic tree Hanmer Forest is extensive and runs down the west side of the town. There are numerous walks and bike trails, so start by getting a trail map before you head out. A particularly pretty section is the Woodland Walk Recreation Reserve, on the side of Jollies Pass Road and just out of town.

There are numerous examples of exotic trees, some of which are relatively rare in New Zealand, plus great open spaces for picnics.
