We wish to thank all patrons for supporting the service during our first after-COVID period. It made an easy option for popping over to Arrowtown but we still have free parking and the very affordable ORbus option from Queenstown and Frankton.
Please keep coming and enjoying the exciting dining and bar options or visit Dorothy Browns Cinema. Come shopping and enjoy the warm hospitality. Everyone loves Arrowtown and it's perfect for Après Ski! It’s friendly, picturesque and just pretty darn special!
Please support our local businesses and help our local community.
Australia’s first saint, Sister Mary MacKillop visited Arrowtown in 1897 and set up a Catholic School. Part of this school can still be visited today.
The discoverer of gold in the Arrow river was a shepherd named Jack Tewa or Maori Jack. He also won the Royal Humane medal for saving a man from drowning in Lake Wakatipu.
There are two theories as to why the town is named Arrowtown. One is that the river behind the town flows swiftly like an arrow.
Arrowtown is one of the fastest growing towns in New Zealand:
There has been a fire station on the current site since 1890. The hand drawn hose reel was used until the 1940’s.
The trees in Arrowtown’s beautiful avenues are Sycamore, Ash, Oak, Elm, and Rowan. The first avenue was planted in 1867.
