Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Travel around the local area and not just stay in town like we did.

Liked: Great Weather and beautiful scenery and the locals were welcoming

Disliked: Unfortunately the town being as big as it should be have more going on in the town centre than what it currently has to try and keep the tourist in the town, instead the backpackers go else where but stay in Greymouth. The town centre could do with a face lift. Where the touris dieing down is due to the earthquakes in Christchurch im not sure.

Travel Type:
Alone

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Go when the weather is pleasant, not in the winter unless you're very hardy, and talk with the locals, who are so very friendly and have stories to tell!

Liked: The people are really nice and helpful, especially considering that the main area employer, a coal mine, is planning to lay off more than 200 miners, and the contractors for the mine as well. But the Left Bank Gallery is excellent, as are the various greenstone/jade and wool shops, the knitting shop is very good with good bargains/very nice staff, and Aly's cafe make the BEST chowder; other restaurants also feature good fish dishes as well as beef and lamb...some very good eating is possible in this city.

Disliked: Well...the weather was awful when I was there; on an earlier visit, it was sunny and much warmer, so there is really nothing i dislike about the town itself.

Customer Travel Tip: Take a bike/car and drive to the port. There is nice view to the beach and in clear weather all the way to the mountains (Mt Cook etc.) too. Good hot chocholate in the Late night cafe.

Liked: There are some good cafes still in the town.

Disliked: I didn't find much about Greymouth. It was really bad weather when I was there. All the activities seemed to be in nearby towns and nothing in Greymouth itself.
