Lovely old street with shops. The museum itself is worth the visit. Many artifacts from New Zealand history on display.

What a superb small town, just lovely. You get the sense of a gold mining town and the Museum was brilliant. Plenty of free parking and good cafes, small shops etc. Really loved this place and would like to come back again.

We jumped on the local bus service from Queenstown ($15 each way) and were soon there in around 20 mins. We popped into the museum by the bus station, it was really good, ( $10 each). We then enjoyed the local sights and architecture dating...More

Found town very pretty to visit. Main shops mainly boutiques so found it quiet expensive. Didn't find much to do when arrived mid afternoon. Safe place to stop and have a break. Great lolly shop there for lolly lovers.

We enjoyed our stroll around Arrowtown, the buildings have been well looked after and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to while away some time whilst observing all the other tourists. We found the nearby Chinese Settlement very interesting.

The buildings on the main road in Arrowtown are mostly historical buildings, including the museum and the post shop. The walk down the street is quite interesting with the old facades being the main sights and then the newer ones hidden behind, accesses from alleyways....More

The main street with buildings reminiscent of the gold mining era makes this a truly beautiful village. Be sure sure to visit the Chinese settlement and take a walk along the river. Arrowtown is definitely worth a side trip when visiting Queenstown.

I believe the market is on a Saturday. Unfortunately I’m unable to help with the parade. Enjoy your visit.
