Best you contact the hostel:

Normally hostels do not allow pets, and if they allow them, you normally find it in the description. Some BBH hostels are listed as pet-friendly, Poplar Lodge is not one of them - which again does not exclude it 100%. So really, best you ask.

Travel Tips for Arrowtown

All Day Free Parking

by kiwi

As you drive in to town, follow the signs you see reading "All Day Free Parking". Go down by the river, and there is plenty of parking.
Even on a busy day, although you may not get to park right next to the mainstreet, you can park nearby and not a long walk.

Walk through the old Chinese Miners Village.

by kiwi

At the Western end of town, walking distance from the main street, you will find the restored Chinese Miners Village. There are several examples of huts they build from stone. What is amazing is how small they are and seemingly how small the men must have been.

Very old tree.

by kiwi

Here in Arrowtown, on one of the main corners, right by the old miners' cottages, stands one of the regions old trees. Certainly very old by NZ standards, remembering out history is very young.
This is the MARY COTTER TREE, and was planted in 1867.
I guess it is one of the oldest pioneer planted trees, rather than a native. The Mary Cotter Tree is the one in the foreground of the photograph, just out front of the Library.

Use Crown Range

by Aidy_p

From Cadrona, you have two choices of how you can get to Arrowtown and Queenstown. One, is by going through Cromwell, or two, the rough and tumble of Crown Range, which is also a longer but a much more scenic drive.

Since we can from afar, we might as well do the latter. One interesting point to note is that the Crown Range Road is the highest main road in New Zealand. The road brings you through mountains and interesting zigzag roads.

From Gold Fields to Fields of Gold

by cnango

Arrowtown is known for it's rich goldfields, in fact it was a Californian gold miner named William Fox who staked the first claim. The rest as they say is history. While drivng into Arrowtown I admired a different kind of gold ,it was the golden fields of grain. I don't know if these were fields of golden barley or not but the lyrcis from the Sting Song 'Fields of Gold' kept running through my mind.............

"You'll remember me
when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in the FIELDS OF GOLD.........."
