A Romance of Lake Wakatipu

Note 3.—Arrow River

page 100

Note 3.—Arrow River.

This river takes its rise from the snows on Mount Hyde, and after a crooked course through a succession of deep gorges, during which it receives several tributaries, all proved to be highly auriferous, it emerges into open country at Arrowtown, and after a further course of six miles along the base of the Crown Ridge it joins the Kawarau. The distance in a straight line from the most remote source of the Arrow to its mouth is fifteen miles, but the course by the river will be a few more.
