Named after William Butler, an Irishman who arrived in Arrowtown during the Gold Rush era, Butler’s Green is a popular and central spot for locals and visitors alike. The sunny spot with immaculately groomed grass is a great place to enjoy a picnic before shopping at any of Arrowtown’s boutique shops
After checking out the historic Chinese Village, you can take a walk along the Arrow River where there are picnic spots aplenty! Try your hand at gold panning, you never know what you might find.
Halfway down Buckingham Street lies the Buckingham Green, a sunny popular spot for families. Located close to the sweet shop and next to an ice-cream store, you can see why it’s a favourite with the kids.
The Library Green is a sheltered area, and home to the popular Pie, Pint and Pinot event during the annual Arrowtown Autumn Festival. Here you can sit amongst the trees in Arrowtown (hint if you go in Autumn you will be surrounded by orange, reds and golds) and are close to historic cafes to fill your picnic basket.
