I think this was one of our highlights in New Zealand. Maybe because few people go there so we basically had the sequoia forest to our own. The springs are lovely, not only Hamurana, also the dancing ... more »

A simply stunning walk! I don't think I've ever seen water as still and as clear as it is here. Walking with giant Redwoods is also an incredibly experience. Free and beautiful
Awesome walk through a beautiful park. The stream is crystal clear and you can even grab a drink from the dancing sands area.
The springs are located next to the golf course. It's not well sign posted, but you just need to keep an eye out for the Hamurana golf resort and stop in the carpark. The walk to the springs goes through a Redwood forest grove. It's not a long walk, but still nice to stroll among the giant trees. The path runs along the crystal clear river. Keep an eye out for the trout playing in the waters. The spring itself has a high and a low viewing platforms, offering a great view of the water pouring out of the ground. The return path brings you to another feature called the dancing sands where another spring comes out of the ground causing the sand to bubble randomly.
An atmospheric delight and beauty - just being there is a very special experience.
Nice and relaxing walk, water so clear that you can see very clearly of the odd fish and how deep the spring is! Amazing!
