|River mouth||Uawa River|
The Hikuwai River is a river of the northeastern North Island of New Zealand. It flows south through a valley between two hill ridges to the north of Tolaga Bay, and for most of its length runs parallel with the Pacific coast, which lies 5 kilometres (3 mi) to the east. The river is a tributary of the Uawa River joining with it 10 kilometres (6 mi) before the Uawa flows into the sea at Tolaga Bay.
