The historic gold-mining town is filled with history & offers easy access to walking trails, shops, art galleries & more, just 20 minutes outside Queenstown.

The heart of Arrowtown’s history is Buckingham Street, showcasing buildings that reach into a tree-lined avenue of tiny miners’ cottages.  Charmingly rustic, but classy little shops, galleries, bars, & restaurants are there for you to enjoy.

Arrowtown is a well-known walking & biking centre. Many Wakatipu walking trails & cycle tracks of the area either start or finish in the town. Talk to the staff at the museum Information Centre for maps & local information.
