Owner description: The discovery of gold in this river led to the settlement of thousands along its banks.

We took a jet ride on the arrow river! Exhilarating experience! The trained staff is extremely vigilant regarding customers preparedness of the natural elements like wind chill factor etc! Need gloves n jackets as the temperature plummets with wind chill ratio n speed coming in! Knowing how to swim is not a requirement as it is a very safe ride! All in all awesome!

Nice and clean water and you can gold-pan any time. The best is after big rains but there is always some gold in the river!

Excellent 4-wheel adventure up the river with gold panning. Entire family found gold in the first shovels.

Great town and river. Heaps of history and tradition and a lot of info. Beautiful location and a must to see if you visit Queenstown. Highly recommended.

It was wet but quaint old Arrowtown still looked lovely. The museum is well worth a visit and a great place to avoid the rain. In-between showers we strolled up and down the main street, had lunch and then walked through the Chinese village. I am sure the river walks would have been lovely on a nice day.
