The West Coast Wilderness Trail

If you disembark at Greymouth train station, collect your cycle and, or meet your tour guide.

Departing from the historic Greymouth Railway Station, you'll set off along the mighty Grey River and past a working port, before journeying out toward the wild and wonderful Tasman Sea.

You'll then wind your way along the historic Kumara Bush Tram through regenerating forest and new farm land. Towards the end of the day, you'll get some rip-snorting (impeccable) views of the Taramakau.

Stay the night at one of stunning accommodation providers, or dine and stay at the Kumara Theatre Royal Hotel.
