The fertile plains around the lower Aorere lie in the lower left of this satellite view, which shows the river's outflow into Golden Bay.

The Aorere River is in the South Island of New Zealand.

The headwaters are within Kahurangi National Park. The river flows generally northwards for 40 kilometres (25 mi) before draining into Golden Bay at the town of Collingwood. The Heaphy Track's northeastern end is in the upper valley of the Aorere.

Tributaries of the Aorere include the Spey, Boulder, and Slate Rivers.
