The weather in Hanmer Springs (and New Zealand in general) can be extremely variable – commonly described as “four seasons in one day”.  When travelling, it is important to carry clothing to suit any condition – from rain to hail to snow. Layering your clothing is a good option – frosty mornings often turn into beautiful warm, sunny days.
