Wander into the wonders of West-Coast history on this free walking tour of Greymouth. You will walk along the banks of the mighty Grey River / Mawheranui, the lifeblood of town and province.


Risk the unique but chilly Greymouth “Barber” a katabatic wind “that cuts to the bone”. A meteorological wonder found in only a handful of places worldwide.


Immerse yourself in Maori legends of our origins and be inspired by early European history. Told by world-renowned storyteller Andy Wright with over 25 years experience performing throughout Asia, America, Europe, and Australasia.


Delve into the history of the buildings and structures that make up Greymouth. Feel the grit and stone of a community founded on gold, and built on coal.
