There’s so much to see and do in Queenstown - it’s exciting, sophisticated and fantastically scenic. But it’s not all about bungy jumps and jet boat rides; there’s also a quieter, more relaxed side to this alpine resort. You could, for example, take a leisurely tour of the local wine region or visit Arrowtown.
Once a gold rush settlement, Arrowtown is one of the most charming historic towns in New Zealand and a great place to find out about Otago’s past. Explore the Chinese miners’ settlement by the Arrow River, visit the Lakes District Museum, then find a convivial café to soak up the surroundings.
