Arrowtown Chinese Settlement
Imagine life in 1860s gold rush times
Compare lifestyles of the gold rush days on Arrowtown’s preserved main street, where wealthy banks and merchants traded, and the restored huts on the edge of town that reveal the more modest lifestyles of the Chinese miners.
Conservation work has been completed on the Chinese store, last operated by Ah Lum, while visitors can enter houses along the residential area of the settlement.
This is a gorgeous spot a short amble from town, down by the river, that sports spectacular gold and yellow leaves in autumn.
