The Pahau River or Pahu River is a river of the north Canterbury Region of New Zealand's South Island. It has its origins in the Tekoa Range, 25 kilometres northwest of Culverden, and flows initially north before turning south to flow down a long valley between two ridges. At the northern edge of the Canterbury Plains it turns southeast, flowing past the southern outskirts of Culverden to reach the Hurunui River eight kilometres to the southeast of the town.
