The Glentui River is a river in the Canterbury region of New Zealand. It arises on the slopes of Mount Richardson and flows south-east through the locality of Glentui and into Ashley River/Rakahuri, which exits in the Pacific Ocean.[1] The river was earlier called Tui Creek, and the locality named from the station Glentui established by H.C.H. Knowles in 1854.[2][3]

There are nature and waterfall walking tracks along the river.[4]
