Greymouth to Kumara Details

This is makes up day 1 of the 136km West Coast Wilderness Trail.
Departing from the historic Greymouth Railway Station, you'll set off along the mighty Grey River and past a working port, before journeying out to the wild and wonderful Tasman Sea.
Follow the coast south, behind sand dunes and along tidal lagoons, until you cross the Taramakau. (It's a river… a bigee.)
You'll then wind your way along the historic Kumara Bush Tram through regenerating forest and new farm land, and towards the end of the day, you'll get some rip-snorting (impeccable) views of the Taramakau. With a flat, cruisy days cycling under your belt, you've got the night to rest up in Kumara!
Make sure you ask the townsfolk at the renovated hotel about the town's bawdy gold mining history. (In its rough, tough heyday it had a whopping 50 pubs!)
