Hororata is a small settlement at the northwestern edge of the Canterbury Plains in the South Island of New Zealand. It is located 15 kilometres southwest of Darfield, five kilometres south of Glentunnel, and 50 kilometres west of Christchurch, on the banks of the Hororata River.
Hororata sustained some damage in the 2010 Canterbury earthquake of 4 September 2010. The settlement's most prominent building, the Anglican church of St. John, was badly affected; part of its tower collapsed onto the church's roof.
