Hanmer Info
General Information about Hanmer & this event
When should I go to Hanmer? Most people will travel up and spend 2 nights in Hanmer, leaving Friday after work and staying the Friday & Saturday Night. Accommodation between a group is often very cheap, the average house to hire can work out as little as $20 per person per night. However some will travel up on the Saturday morning to make the workshops, while others will just travel to make the party and leave the same night without staying. We prefer to stay 2 nights so we can relax in the hot pools... you choose!
Hot pools visit http://www.hanmersprings.co.nz
