The quiet, charming village of Arrowtown is well worth visiting while in Queenstown. It has an extremely attractive town centre, with a wide variety of interesting shops and boutiques. The tree lined streets and nearby hills are stunning in autumn, and the town hosts the Arrowtown Autumn festival each year. Near the town center is a Chinese Mining Camp historic site where Chinese miners used to live and work in Arrowtown, which is worth checking out. Arrowtown is around 20 minutes drive from Queenstown. Buckingham Street Car Park is probably the most convenient for most visitors.
