To get to G, can I make a suggestion? At Reefton, turn south, then right at Ikamatua (for the alternate route on the north side of the river) and on to Blackball. Stay at the Formerly the Blackball Hilton
, well worth the experience. Then head to the coast near Greymouth and turn north, that section is some of the best on the entire west coast. A great lunch spot is The Bay House Cafe on Tauranga Bay, near Cape Foulwind. Thence up the Buller Gorge.
