Arrowtown was founded in 1862 as the cry of 'gold!' rang through the Wakatipu Basin.
As the gold rush began, a canvas town went up and the miners flooded in. The town was off to a flimsy start as the tents proved too delicate to withstand the harsh conditions of Arrowtown's four distinct seasons, so by the middle of the 1870s a more substantial town had risen.
