Arrow River has been made famous by gold deposits. The discovery of gold in the Arrow River led to the influx of many miners into the district. Owing to this gold rush, a large number of settlements sprang up near and around the gold digging areas and as a result, Arrowtown was formed. William Fox discovered gold in Arrow River and it was he who led the gold rush of 1860s. Initially from a small group of miners who mined gold secretly, a large number of people became aware and about 230 lbs of gold was recovered.
