In 1862 about 113 kg of gold was found in the arrow river. The population grew quickly and attracted first European and than Chinese gold diggers. Pioneers started shops and Hotels which still can be seen today as Arrowtown has grown in a little museum. The buildings contain shops now and there is a walkway along the small Chinese cottages.
Next to the parking is the river. The autumn colours start to appear
I could restrain to buy something here but I had to take a picture of these treats
The old cottages in the centre of town are now inhabited by shops
Lots of history
Yes autumn is definitely on its way In one month's time Arrowtown is all red and yellow
