There is a unique balance on the West Coast however. The acute awareness of being future-focused is matched with the appreciation of the region’s rich history. Living and working on the West Coast, it is difficult to ignore the stories of the founding fathers - true pioneers and trail blazers. The resilient nature of Coasters transcends the generations, making for a community of hard workers. And they are a friendly bunch, just pop into one of the region’s many cafes for a coffee and a yarn, and it won’t be too long before you’ll feel at home.

The West Coast South Island region reaches from Kahurangi Point in the north to Awarua Point in the south, a distance of 600 km. Our land is very spectacular, scenic, with wild coastlines, surrounded by mountains, rivers, lakes and a very high proportion of native bush, much of its native temperate rain forest.

The largest town within the West Coast is Greymouth, located in the Grey District. And has the turnaround point of the TranzAlpine train journey, recognised as one of the top train trips in the world. There is so much to do and see, you never grow tired of the rugged, untouched beautiful environment we have on our doorstep.

Grey District ticks many boxes that are often sought after; affordable housing, vast employment industry options – Health care, Construction, Education, Manufacturing, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, Transport just to name a couple. Less traffic, and a close supportive community.

Education is a key focus on the Coast providing the regions young adults with stepping stones to a profitable working life. Options include modern early childhood education facilities and a good selection of primary, and secondary schools including Tertiary Education at Tai Poutini Polytechnic (TPP) which offers a wide range of technical study options from foundation to degree programmes offering exciting opportunities to get a head start in their career or take the next step on their learning journey.

The Grey District is the perfect place to bring up children. You’ll not only be able to spend more time with them but also have more disposable income to spend on their upbringing. They’ll grow up surrounded by grass rather than asphalt, and the sound of birds instead of traffic.
