Old Miners Cottage

Arrowtown New Zealand

 

Miners cottage Arrowtown Sunrise Clouds Tree covered mountains

The beautiful thing about Arrowtown is the colour, especially in autumn as the tree coloured mountains turn from green to shades of yellow and red. Add to this its quaint architecture as a result of its rich gold mining history and you have a recipe for some really great scenery. Arrowtown is an often missed by people travelling the South Island of New Zealand, for no other reason than it sits only 10 minutes from its larger, more popular neighbour, Queenstown.

I was out walking the Queenstown Trail before sunrise and when I was returning to my car I saw the colour in clouds and had to run to grab my camera to make sure I didn’t miss this scene.This little miners cottage sits in a carpark in the middle of Arrowtown down by Dudley’s Cottage, and the Old Chinese Settlement by the Arrow river.
