Lovely, cozy mining township with excellent shopping (more artisan than tourist) and beautiful food. Have a loop walk down the river to end your arvo. Gorgeous!!
Amazingly that in the old days the Chinese immigrants were looking for gold here. The circumstances during those days must have been tough. There are a number of tiny little cabins were they lived. The area is beautiful but very crowded with tourists now. Bus loads of tourists…
Very pretty area especially if you are visiting in autumn- April to June. I recommend doing sawpit gully walking trail which goes around arrowtown river- it is just a beautiful walk with mesmerising views.
We loved exploring the historic Chineses settlement, so interesting! If we had bikes, the river trail would be lovely to ride. Nice to be able to buy an ice cream at the Patagonia ice cream shop. Exciting to think gold was found in this river.
I loved our afternoon walk along the river ! an easy walk.. good paths and signs... an easy stroll!!
