The Famous Cheese Pub

We couldn’t leave Greymouth without going down to the Breakwater to check out the entrance to the port. I’ve see pictures of some of the fishing boats coming in over the bar and it is not for the faint hearted. These guys are amazing with this harbour.

People collecting Driftwood down by the Greymouth Breakwater

Today the water was very settled and there were a few people out gathering driftwood with the Mountains behind bathed in sunshine. You could tell from the water how ugly it could be though on a bad day.

As we travelled south, we had to stop at the Mahinapua Hotel and get some piccies there before checking out the Lake.

There is a Doc park right opposite the Hotel where you can stay which has a kitchen and toilets right next to the lake. Its a lovely spot.

Back out of the main road, there is a reminder of the history of the area with a coal trolley from a mine in front of the Hotel.

The lakefront park is a neat spot to stop for a cup of tea or lunch.
