It is a fascinating story.
Above the town, on the banks of Bush Creek, a tributary of the Arrow river, is the partially restored and well interpreted Arrowtown Chinese Settlement - a mute reminder and tribute to the contribution made by the Chinese goldminers and business people to the region’s goldmining, cultural and business history. The census figures for 1874 reveal that there were 3,564 Chinese in Otago, and the peak population in New Zealand was 4,995 in 1881, with the majority of those settling in Otago and on the West Coast. Those who lived close to towns were often the victims of discrimination. They lived on the fringes of European settlements though many also lived 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. Later most were exhumed and shipped to be reburied in their villages in China.
