Arrowtown is a short drive, scenic drive from Queenstown. It's really just one street but there's a lot packed into that street. Worth the drive.

There are 2 routes by Connectabus which departs from O'Connell's Shopping Centre. Both take around 30-35 minutes. 1 of them goes directly to Arrowtown while the other interchanges at Frankton hub.
