Arrowtown is located only 20 minutes scenic drive from Queenstown and it is pretty town nestled in hills and the Remarkables mountain. It is a living legacy of gold-mining town but it is now a sophisticated, multi-cultural town catering to the refined tastes of its visitors from around the globe. Arrowtown offers a tranquil atmosphere and a unique ambiance with its eclectic mix of shops and galleries selling locally made arts and crafts. The special focus on food in this town is evident in its good selection of fine dining restaurants serving the freshest New Zealand products to international cuisine, from cafes and bars to sweet treats and takeaways. The small town can be easily explored by taking a leisure walk through the main street and quaint lanes.
TIP: I think Autumn is the best time go to see the beautiful changing colours of the trees in the mountains surrounding the town.
