A rich history

Steeped in heritage, Arrowtown is rich in gold rush history and pastoral landscapes established by early pioneers. Character filled streets are lined by well-preserved historical buildings and cottages, now home to cozy bars, homes, lodges, restaurants, shops and galleries.

The village’s development and architecture is designed to respect and reflect this very special heritage.

Ayrburn Farm

Northbrook’s site is located on what was known as Ayrburn Farm, one of the original farms in the region. William Paterson first converted the land for agricultural use around 1865 - 1867, naming the farm ‘Ayrburn’ after the town of 'Ayr' where he was born in West Kilbride, Scotland.

Ayrburn Station became one of the most highly regarded estates of the Wakatipu Basin, hosting the areas first A&P show in 1904 and is now the site of several heritage buildings including the Ayrburn Domain stone buildings and the Ayrburn Homestead with it's grand tree-lined entrance.
