The Breakers - Greymouth
Central to this land of beauty is the magnificent “Coast Road” between Greymouth and Westport (State Highway 6), recently voted one of the TOP TEN scenic drives in the world, on which you will find two of those “musts”. “Must see” the Pancake Rock formations and blow-holes at Punakaiki and “Must Stay” at the Breakers – one of New Zealand’s most spectacularly located bed and breakfasts.
Location Map
Greymouth is the largest town in the West Coast region on the South Island of New Zealand, and the seat of the Grey District Council. Its population accounts for 20% of the West Coast's inhabitants.
The town is located at the mouth of the Grey River. It stands on narrow coastal plains close to the foot of the Southern Alps. In clear weather, Aoraki/Mount Cook can be clearly seen to the south from near the town. The mouth of the river divides the town into three areas: Blaketown, close to the river's mouth on the south bank; Karoro, to the southeast, separated from Blaketown by a series of small lakes; and Cobden, formerly a separate town, on the river's north bank.
