The Awakino River is a river located in the North Island of New Zealand. It has been described as one of the great rivers in the North Island providing top-quality backcountry fishing. It holds excellent stocks of rainbow trout and brown trout in a beautiful setting.[1] Awakino township lies on its river banks.[2]

River route[edit]

The river rises in the rugged bush country of the King Country and flows south via the settlement of Mahoenui from where it runs alongside State Highway 3 to the Tasman Sea at Awakino.[1]
