Location of the Allen River.

The Allen River is a river in the West Coast district of the South Island of New Zealand. It drains the south side of the Allen Range (heights up to 1,450 m) which forms part of the boundary between West Coast and Tasman districts. The river has left and right branches for half its length, and the right branch has a major tributary stream in a valley between the two branches. The united river flows south through a narrow gorge and is joined by the Johnson River 200 m upstream of its confluence with the North branch of the Mokihinui River.
