The Forest Amble Walk in Hanmer Springs is the perfect short walk for kids, with a range of large wooden art sculptures to find along the way. The Hanmer Heritage Forest is beautiful as it is, but you’ll have no trouble enticing the kids on this walk with a big friendly giant, an Orangutan, a Tuatara, and a dog (to name a few) to spy along the way.
The track starts at 100 Jollies Pass Road and is about a 30 minute stroll, depending on the pace of your smallest walker.
Keep the excitement going and connect onto the Fairy Doors Walk. Kids will love walking through the forest and finding beautifully painted fairy doors as well as painted rocks and trinkets along the way.
The fairy doors section of the Dog Stream Track starts at Brooke Dawson Park. To find this enchanting trail, drive to the end of Bath Street, head down the hill and park at the reserve. Once in Brooke Dawson Park, head over the little bridge and head straight ahead into the fairy forest.
There are tracks to suit everyone and various fitness levels; take a look and plan your next trip!
