Hamurana Springs Walk
Hamurana Springs is a wonderful place to perk yourself up with a non-strenuous short walk (½hr tops) in a tranquil setting, far away from the drama of daily life.
And the water! Crystal clear but laced with shades of turquoise, jade and emerald, it looks so inviting it's hard to resist throwing your clothes off and diving right in. Visit yourself then tell me if I'm wrong.
The Reserve is made up of the Hamurana Stream, a scenic walking track through a Redwood Grove, the main spring Te Puna-a-Hangarua, the Dancing Sands Spring and a wide variety of wildlife Te Puia Cultural and Geothermal Park is a truly magical place.
