Queenstown | The Pure Gold of Arrowtown

Is a “must visit”. Tucked away at the end of a valley, Arrowtown is known for its tranquility and charm. It is the perfect alternative to its busier neighbour Queenstown. The tree-lined avenues are not only picturesque, but also serve to frame the town’s history. The town has managed to retain many of its heritage buildings.arrowtown-2

So before the food was served to us, I went somewhere down the road. Hahaha! Yes, I went down alone to know about this Arrowtown’s history and why it became Pure Gold.

Pure Gold, because it is used to be a mining town way back 1950. And it is 150 years old already since the discovery of Gold. After a few minutes I came back and the food is not yet served. I’m so hungry but the food was served like 15 minutes later but it was worth the wait. Our food in order; Venison Hot Pot, Lamb Shanks, Pork Ribs, Steak (NZ is best for their Premium steak), Caesar’s Salad

A good dining experience will always be given a thumbs up. Arrowtown is the best place to be. A quiet place but will never run out of good and unique cuisine. If you are visiting Queenstown, why not visit Arrowtown? It is just 15-20 minutes away from the airport and 20-25 minutes from the cit of Queenstown.
