Arrowtown

Old village, shopping and waves.

sunny 20 °C

Last day in Queenstown and I was heading to a nearby village. Arrowtown is a charming and picturesque village know to be the best preserved goldmine-villages with a Chinese settlement. The village has basically one main street with old houses with shops and restaurants in every single one of them. Easy to strol around and feel the atmosphere.
The short trip back followed Lake Hayes with nice views of mountains in the background.
Wanted to do some shopping before my evening activities, so headed down to the centre to look for memories and other things to bring home. After a couple of hours of shopping, I got back to my studio to make a clothes change and headed down to the harbour again to board the steamer ship that went to the other side of Lake Wakatipu and back. The boat was nearly full on the way out and at the stop all except eight people went of to eat dinner at the restaurant placed at this end of the lake. On the back home you got a great lakeview over Queenstown. After the boat trip I had a great dinner right at the harbour.
