Located on the west coast of New Zealand's South Island, Greymouth is a gem brimming with natural wonders and Maori heritage. Whether you're arriving by rail or otherwise, renting a car from Rhinocarhire provides you with the ultimate flexibility to explore this vibrant region.
Departing from Greymouth Train Station:
The Greymouth Train Station is a pivotal transport hub, connecting travelers to the TranzAlpine scenic train journey. Upon collecting your car, exiting is straightforward. Tainui Street leads you directly out from the station, seamlessly connecting you to the town and beyond.
Greymouth is well-serviced with petrol stations. Before embarking on longer trips, especially towards more remote areas, it's wise to fill up. Fuel prices can vary, so it's good practice to top off when in larger towns.
The joy of driving in the Greymouth region is the absence of toll roads. Navigate the area freely and soak in its natural beauty without additional fees.
Greymouth’s roads are generally in good condition. However, when exploring the more rugged terrains, especially in national parks, be prepared for gravel roads. Always check road conditions before setting out, particularly in wet weather.
Traffic in Greymouth is generally light. However, during peak tourist season and public holidays, certain areas can see an influx of visitors. Always allow a little extra travel time during these periods.
The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) is embraced in New Zealand. While Greymouth has a few EV charging stations, planning ahead is crucial when journeying to less populated areas.
Weather & Choice of Car:
The west coast of New Zealand can be rainy, so consider a vehicle with good traction. If you're venturing into the mountains or national parks, an SUV or a vehicle with higher clearance can be beneficial.
