Accomodation and Transport in Greymouth
There is a wide range of accommodation available in Greymouth, from hotels through to motels, holiday parks and backpackers.
Shuttle buses will be picking delegates up/dropping off at several spots along the main route between Greymouth and Shantytown (Main South Road/State Highway 6), so before booking your accommodation, check on Google Maps and make sure that you are staying within walking distance of this main road or central Greymouth.
