Arrowtown is the much visited, historic, 4-season, southern hemisphere holiday destination, located only 20 minutes drive from Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand.
Arrowtown is a former gold-mining town built on a rich history which is waiting for you to explore.

Arrowtown is built on the banks of the Arrow River, once a rich source of gold in the 1860's and now a sophisticated, multi-cultural town catering to the refined tastes of its visitors from around the globe.

Arrowtown offers an ambiance not found elsewhere with its shops, restaurants, cafes, offices and galleries located within a tight precinct. Come and visit, stay awhile and enjoy the time exploring the streets and lanes.

The Lakes District Museum, is also the town's major Information Centre and is located on the main street. It is the focal point for all that is the history of the town and the surrounding areas.

Arrowtown is recognised as the walking and biking centre of the Wakatipu and the many walking trails and cycle tracks of the area either start or finish in the town. Talk to the staff at the museum Information Centre for maps and local information.

Enjoy our range of activities from gold-panning, teeing off on Millbrook's international golf-course, shopping, dining to quite simply just relaxing in one of our beautiful hotel, motel, bed & breakfast or resort style accommodation options.
