Very gorgeous town lucky we made the stop this place is a must see. Nice beautiful walk and alot to explore. I was hesitant but this town was so exciting and had something for all the family.

Definitely worth the short drive from Queenstown for a morning browsing quaint craft shops and a good brunch. Could fill in a whole day if you add a walk, bungy jump or jet boat ride (or all of the above if you’re game!),

Ideal place of quaint pure charm. The high street of heritage buildings and small miner's cottages is lovely. Full of good shops-including the remarkable sweet shop. Good place to be away from headiness of Queenstown. I enjoyed a lot.

冬天的 Arrowtown 稍顯蕭瑟,樹葉,小溪都略顯寂清,不過好處是人也少一些吧!雖然我沒有在秋天旺季造訪 Arrowtown 的經驗...... 到 Arrowtown 如果要用餐,建議試試 The Chop Shop 的羊肉喔!

What a great find, looks like a movie set. Quaint little shops line the Main Street. 1 street back you can even pan for gold in the small crystal clear stream. If your staying in Queenstown take the short trip to Arrowtown.

April/May is a beautiful time in Arrowtown with the trees in full Autumn colour. April is also when the Arrowtown Autumn Festival is on.
