Top 3 things to do in Arrowtown

Top 3 things to do in Arrowtown

Arrowtown, (it's near Queenstown) is the cuter, younger sibling to the tourism mecca - not only is it a pretty place to visit, it offers exceptional dining, entertainment and shopping all within walking distance from each other....and if you don't want to walk, 9 times out of 10 you'll get a car park - on the main street!

Make a day/night of it and enjoy our Arrowtown top 3.

1. Lunch at Chop Shop

Not just lunch - breakfast, brunch or coffee (anytime of the day), bask in the sunshine on the north facing deck overlooking the streets below, or snuggle up with friends or lovers for the best lunch in Arrowtown (possibly Queenstown). You know it's good when the locals can't stay away. We adore the Pork Hock Hash or the Nasi Goreng - so so good. Tempt your taste buds on their delightful Instagram feed @thechopshopfooderchants 

You can find Chop Shop on Arrow lane

2. Dorothy Browns Cinema

Showing a mix of arthouse and mainstream movies, Dorothy Browns is a 2 screen boutique cinema with cosy (yet spacious) seating, enjoy a glass of Central Otago wine, cheese board and relax whilst watching your favourite movie stars.

To view movie times visit or call to book your ticket over the phone (it is advised to book early as this little cinema has a big following).
