Activities and Attractions in Greymouth

Shantytown

Discover fascinating stories of real New Zealanders and experience a recreated gold-rush village just 10km from Greymouth. West Coast isolation, extreme weather and rugged terrain produced stories of fortitude and ingenuity. Shantytown tells these pioneering stories through a fascinating mix of experiences and displays. Ride the steam train through native rainforest, experience the sights and sounds of a working sawmill, watch the sluice gun blast gold-bearing rock and soil from the earth, then follow the races to the gold claim and pan for your own gold; a strike is guaranteed! The village, with 30 shops and buildings to explore, shows life the way it used to be.

Garth Wilson Jade

Garth Wilson's ancestors have been jade carvers for hundreds of years. His tribes, Ngati Mahaki and Ngati Waewae, were the 2 Maori tribes who lived and traded pounamu on the West Coast of the Southern Alps, which is the only place where pounamu is found in New Zealand. Because of his tribal history Garth has customary rights to go onto the rivers and up in the mountains to gather the pounamu. He uses only this West Coast pounamu to carve the pendants and sculptures in his gallery. Go and watch Garth carve and learn about the designs and the special meanings that they have.

On Yer Bike!

The West Coast may have a reputation for its high rainfall (actually it's 2.5 - 3m of rain every year!), but because of all that water On Yer Bike! has the most amazing off-road quad biking and off-road adventure tracks through masses of puddles, mud and thriving privately owned rainforest! You could also try their GoKart Adventures in a 2-seater or their new single-seater Polaris buggies.
