Sited on the banks of the Arrow River and overlooked by the Crown Terrace, Arrowtown retains much of its pioneering character. In the 1860s the Arrow River, said to have been one of the richest sources of alluvial gold, attracted a cosmopolitan population of gold miners. Now it is an historic living gold mining village with many of the original shops and cottages still in use.
