Things to Do in Greymouth
Just south of the town of Hokitika, the West Coast Treetop Walk & Café offers a fun natural experience for adults and kids. A steel platform allows visitors to walk through the canopy of native rimu and kamahi trees, 65 feet (20 meters) above the ground. A 131-foot-high (40-meter-high) lookout tower offers views of the forest and the surrounding areas.
The West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island is known for its role in the Gold Rush, when people flocked there seeking their fortunes in the 1860s. Immerse yourself in this historical event at the interactive Shantytown Heritage Park. More than just a museum, the park offers a range of family-friendly indoor and outdoor attractions.
