Greymouth is a city with a history of jade prospecting, gold mining and dramatic river flooding. Taste the beer and hear stories of the wild West Coast.
What was once the Maori word Mawhera (meaning “wide river mouth” and referring to the village’s location at the mouth of the river) is now Greymouth, the largest village on the west coast of the South Island. The area has a great history in gold mining, which can be appreciated in the local museum and in the nearby village Shantytown. The local brewery is almost a New Zealand legend; there you can make visits that include a tasting.
