The Dove River is a river in the Tasman Region of New Zealand. It arises in hills between the Wai-iti River and Motueka River and flows north-west into the Motueka near the locality of Woodstock.[1] The river is named for the native pigeons once found in the forests around the river.[2]

Brown trout can be found in the lower reaches of the river.[3]
