The discovery of gold in the Arrow River drove a rush of
settlers to establish settlements close by. Arrowtown was
first establised as Foxes in 1862. Today Arrowtown is a popular
historic town and a showcase of New Zealands gold mining history.
This may be a small little town but there is plenty to do
here. There are world class golf courses for those keen on
a round. If you not keen to hit a ball then there's a large
variety of walking tracks and treks to historic sights around
the town. Maybe you could try your luck and pan for some gold
in the river.
At the end of the day you can relax in front of the fire
in one of Arrowtowns local pubs or resturants.
A hop skip and a jump and you are skiiing, leaping off the
bungy, or in Queenstown, New Zealand's adventure capital.
