The Gulliver River is a river in the Fiordland area of New Zealand. It starts in the Darran Mountains near the Grave-Talbot Pass, and flows north and then west into the Cleddau River, which runs into Milford Sound.[1] The river was named in 1906 by W.G. Grave for Alf Grenfell, who had a nickname of "Gulliver".[2] A track along the Gulliver River from the Cleddau is suitable for day walks in summer and autumn.[3]
