The Punakitere River is a river of the Northland Region of New Zealand's North Island. It is a tributary of the Waima River, though it is longer than the Waima itself. The Punakitere has its origins in several streams which flowe through and to the south of Kaikohe, and flows predominantly westward to reach the Waima close to the small settlement of Moehau.
