It arises in the Amuri Range near Palmer Saddle and runs for 30 kilometres (19 mi) south-east through the Hundalee Hills at the south end of the Seaward Kaikoura Mountains before turning north-east and reaching the Pacific Ocean 30 kilometres south of Kaikoura. The Charwell River is a tributary. It was probably named after the River Conwy in North Wales, as this was the origin of Thomas Hanmer, an owner of Hawkeswood Station near this river during the 1850s.
