Shantytown is one of New Zealand’s premier cultural and heritage attractions. A faithfully recreated 1900s pioneer town, born out of, and stimulated by, the great West Coast gold rushes of the 1860s.
Shantytown, nestled amidst regenerative native rain forest provides a real sense of what it was like to live in New Zealand then and what it means to be a New Zealander now, by allowing you to be both participant and observer in this most dynamic period of its post-Maori colonisation.
Shantytown is also one of the West Coast's leading functions, conferences and weddings venues. Shantytown is located approximately 10km south of Greymouth.
Open daily until 5pm, 7 days per week.
