Top Local Tips for Greymouth

Just don't... The little town of Hokitika seemed a more pleasant option, there is little to recommend Greymouth.

TransAlpine Train This is a nice, if overmarketed and overrated way to get to Christchurch. It is an adventure and is fairly scenic but not totally spectacular as advertised. We chose the train over an escorted bus trip to Christchurch because I am a train fan. I was not disappointed, but do not see much advantage to the train. Be sure to get a "cut lunch" to go although the train does have food on board. The observation cars are open to the elements so you won't spend the whole trip out there. When you get to Christchurch...use the shuttles which are minivans with attached luggage trailers (all over the place and about $5 NZ) which stop at or near most hotels. As a local advised us..."The D__n cabs are too dear!". If you think of the train as public transport, you will be charmed. If you think you're going to be thrilled by vast Alpine vistas, you'll be a bit underwhelmed. Overall...fun but not a "must do".
