Arrow River (Arrow Valley), Otago, South Island, New Zealand

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
The Arrow River is a small icy cold river in Otago, South Island, New Zealand. The Arrow River is the tributary of the Kawarau River, which flows eastwards for about 60kms until it reaches Lake Dunstan. On the western bank of the Arrow River lies Arrowtown between the western slope of Crown Range and the head of the Frankton arm of Lake Wakatipu.

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.
