Greymouth & West Coast

Greymouth Location

Greymouth is the largest township on New Zealand's West Cost and is the turnaround point for the TranzAlpine train service. Located in the upper north west of the South Island, the West Coast is known for its rugged coastline, its gold mining, and jade hunting history. 

Greymouth, also known by its Māori name of Māwhera is a great base for travellers intending to head further south down the West Coast. Franz Josef Glacier, Hokitika, and Haast are all within driving distance of Greymouth.
