Take in a relaxing stroll, a favourite one is, Cross the road from Aspen into the Hospital grounds track, follow to end then cross back across the lawn and out by Leamington St on Amuri Ave. Walk down Leamington St about 150m then turn right taking the descending track down to the Dog-Stream track. Follow this around till you see the sign to go up to Cheltenham St. Follow this and along Cheltenham St and back down Jacks Pass Road to Aspen in Hanmer. Alternatively you can continue pass the sign and follow the rest of the Dog stream till you come out on Jollies Pass Road and follow that back into the village.

Take your vehicle down Jollies Pass Road pass the Forest camp turn left at signpost and follow the track thru to the carpark area.

If you prefer something else less strenuous, take in the Art in the Forest on the Amble walk in the Heritage Forest. This is a flat pleasant 25min walk under the canopy with exciting creatures to meet along the way.
A game of either mini golf at Alpine Putt or quick walk across the Hospital grounds and down the Crawford Track will take you to a unique little course of PitchnPutt. Great fun for all.
Have a Browse in the shopping precinct and see whats on offer. Frequently finding items you can’t find elsewhere.One of the favourites would be The Fresh Fudge shop with a great range of the Best fudge available. Our guests love it especially when they are treated for Birthdays or Anniversary’s.
Alternatively how about a different experience.?? How about a drive into the Molesworth Clarence Valley region. Call into the 4 square or Metro Mart and pickup some fresh picnic food and drink and sandfly repellent in case they are feeding, then carryon down Jacks Pass Road just pass the Medical centre turn right into the Clarence Valley Road. Take the road out to Lake Tennyson. This is a beautiful and scenic area and the Lake is very tranquil.If Fishing is your hobby and passion, then take your rod and license with you.Take time to explore this environment if you have a good 4 wheel drive and the road is fine you could return back via Jollies Pass but it is a lot rougher and frequented by logging trucks so take care out there.
