With its variety of high-end retail stores, art galleries, award-winning food and wine offerings and boutique accommodation, Arrowtown is one of New Zealand’s most sought-after destinations and winter is no exception.
“ Arrowtown really turns on the charm during winter and its close proximity to the ski fields makes it a great place to stay, eat and play,” says Arrowtown Promotion and Business Association manager Nicky Busst. “ There is a lovely mix of accommodation options within easy walking distance to the village. This includes luxury lodges and private cottages, cabins and B&B’s. Millbrook Resort offers a range of hotel and apartments at their award-winning golf resort which also boasts a beauty spa and several dining options.”
Arrowtown is popular for après ski or a day off the mountain.
“ It is a wonderful place to spend time with friends and family taking in the historic laneways and enjoying some seriously good shopping,” says Nicky.
She says there are plenty of options for eating out and Arrowtown’s food scene is a star attraction.
“ You could eat out at a different restaurant every night and not experience the same cuisine – the selection is amazing. Our cafés are humming from early morning for coffees and breakfast through to late afternoon and then the bars, gastropubs and restaurants kick in for some seriously good après ski fun.”
