The Arrowtown Chinese Settlement is a heritage listed, historic village located in Arrowtown, New Zealand and set up by Chinese people during the Otago Gold Rush of the 1860s. The settlement is sometimes referred to as a village and has been restored and is now a common tourist attraction. It is close to Arrowtown on the banks of Bush Creek which is a tributary of the Arrow River.
Ah Lum is a well known example of the Chinese miners who lived in the area, his store is a category 1 listed building through Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga.
Arrowtown Chinese Settlement is a mute reminder and tribute to the contribution made by the Chinese gold miners and business people to the region’s gold mining, cultural and business history.
Census figures for 1874 reveal that there were 3,564 Chinese in Otago. Often, victims of discrimination, they lived on the fringes of European settlements and in isolated gullies close to their mining claims. Chinese that died were either buried in graves in a Chinese section or just outside the cemetery.
