The Waimakariri River flows for 94 miles (151 km) across the South Island of New Zealand, beginning in the Southern Alps and emptying into the Pacific Ocean. In the mid-19th century, it was briefly named the Courtenay River before reverting back to its traditional Maori name, which means “river of cold rushing water.”
