Greytown is a Victorian country village with metropolitan style. It’s the kind of place where you don’t want to forget your credit card because its eclectic mix of independent boutiques, art galleries, antique stores and cafes make it one of New Zealand’s premiere shopping destinations. Gourmet chocolate studio, Schoc Chocolates, is based here. The Soldiers Memorial Park is another feature - 117 lime trees were planted here in 1922 to commemorate the 117 soldiers from the Greytown community that died in WW1. In 2017 Greytown won the award for New Zealand's Most Beautiful Small Town.
