Beautiful to a walk along - either for a brief wander or a much longer hike. Surprise views around many river bends.

We walked a short section af the track along the river near the Chinese Settlement and the pipeline. It was a charming little stream which broadened out further along. Not the most scenic walk but it was peaceful.

I did a tour with Nomad Safaris and included was a visit to Arrowtown and an adventure across the Arrow River - several crossings and a drive through the river were exhilarating. Panning for gold yielded zero but was fun to see how it was done. A scenic experience and reminder of the power of moving water. Great fun in a jeep.

Surrounded by the autumn leaves this clear running water was a delight to be around- there was even a guy fully submerged with a snorkel looking for gold.

Beautiful little township and a must visit on your trip. A number of walks to do nearby for either the easy or hardened walker. Some beautiful eateries to cater for everyone and generally a lovely place to go, such a nice vibe!

We were driven pass the Arrow River in a group with AATKings. It is a small icy cold river surrounded by native forests.

We hired bikes and did the Arrow River track - visited some of the wineries on route as well as the famous Bungy Jump Bridge - Will be happy share with friends next time.

We always walk along the Arrow River for a bit when we visit Arrowtown. There are a variety of walks to choose from - long and short, whatever you fancy. It is very picturesque, particularly in autumn. There are signboards down by the river behind the Arrowtown village explaining the walk options, or you can more detailed info from the museum in the main street.

We followed the Arrow River from Arrowtown to the Kawarau (Bungy) Bridge on the Arrow River Bridges Cycle Trail. It is a wild river with virtually no development except for the cool suspension bridges enroute. The scenery is gorgeous and the trail is easy. Highly recommended!
