Located at just a 20 minute drive from Central Queenstown, the small picturesque settlement of Arrowtown is the perfect place to spend a day at. It is an absolute delight for a nature lover, nestled in the middle of beautiful, green mountains and a serene river. It is a local hotspot for outdoor activities such as hiking, walking, camping, and cycling.
One could also go and explore the historic gold mines in Arrow River, and even give gold panning a shot! The famous Lake Hayes and Queenstown Trail are also located here, which are great for relaxing in the lap of nature.
The Lakes District Museum located here is said to be one of the best small museums in all of New Zealand. You could also bring out the child inside you at The Playground, which is just a playground, but for adults. It has activities such as human foosball, bubble soccer, paintball and archery combat and promises to be a great experience for groups of friends or families. For all history buffs, there are also the ancient Chinese settlements, which are worth exploring. If you visit during the winter, you can engage in various winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding!
