Where history meets nature- a stunning historic town, perfect for sight-seeing and snaps!


In Arrowtown the vibrant history melds with glorious nature to make for an enchanting must-do experience. A walk down Arrowtown’s heritage main street is a journey back in time, while the hills and rivers that teemed with gold mines a century and a half ago are now a mecca for hikers and bikers.

Historic Arrowtown is a New Zealand treasure, and it is recognised as a Tohu Whenua. It is a scenic 25-minute drive from Queenstown, and a popular winter base for international ski teams. It's charming and quirky – a delightful gold-rush village nestled below the beautiful peaks that surround the sparkling Arrow River.
