Bus and Coach Services From Greymouth

Greymouth - West Coast South Island New ZealandGreymouth (Pop: 9,970) is the largest town in the West Coast region on the South Island of New Zealand.

Located at the mouth of the Grey River, on a narrow coastal plain close to the foot of the Southern Alps. In clear weather, Mt Aoraki/Mount Cook can be clearly seen to the south from near the town.

Greymouth is the major town on the West Coast, boasting a range of quality hotels, motels, backpacker hostels and holiday parks with shops from small specialty and tourist shops to national chain stores. Restaurants, cafes and bars provide a hub for entertainment.

Greymouth hosts an enticing range of activities only minutes from the town centre, including the Art Gallery, History House and the walk on the flood wall which protects the town from the mighty Grey River.

The town's major industries include fishing, mining, forestry, and ecotourism, the latter two of these industries holding an uneasy relationship with each other. Greymouth is also known for its Pounamu ("Greenstone", a form of Jade) carving industry which goes back to Māori origins. The town also has a local brewery, Monteith's, which produces beer since 1868, now sold countrywide.

Shantytown - Greymouth

Its peaceful setting amongst regenerating native forest gives visitors the opportunity to step back in time, experience a range of activities and view fascinating relics from days gone by.

The Pancake Rocks at Punakaiki, 45 km to the north are a popular local tourist attraction, while many also pass through on the route to or from the glaciers to the south.
