Shantytown + Brewery

This tour takes you to two of our favourite places!

Shantytown Heritage Park

Shantytown Heritage Park is a village constructed and opened in the early 1970s it consists of 30 re-created historic buildings, born out of the desire of the Greymouth community to preserve the West Coast Goldmining history. Over the years they have gifted a collection of thousands of artefacts.

Stream Train Ride & Gold Panning

Shantytown has lots to offer including a Stream Train ride, Gold Panning, Chinatown, short walks and also King Dick’s café to enjoy a lovely lunch or snack while you explore the history.

Gold Rush Village

Living history in a recreated gold-rush village. Real experiences, real stories and a warm welcome awaits you. Visit the Museum, Steam Collection and Foundry, enjoy a Steam Train ride, visit Chinatown and the Sawmill, watch the Holographic Theatre and take the opportunity to go panning for Gold. Visit Shantytown’s sweet shop, jade and gem store and their onsite cafe.

Monteith’s Brewery

Monteith’s Brewery is a local brewery and something of a New Zealand legend! Offering a true brewery experience you will be guided through the traditions and heritage of brewing. You will also experience the taste of the ever changing and innovative brews; some of which are exclusively produced and sold at the Monteith’s Brewing Company.

The Craft Brewery Experience lets you smell the sweet aromas of the beer as it brews and just soak up the atmosphere of the Brewery. With an extensive range of beers on tap, experience the taste of over ten full flavoured brews to taste, from the very light and fruity, to the dark and full bodied.
