The Tauherenikau River is a river of the Wellington Region of New Zealand's North Island. It flows initially southeast from its sources on the slopes of Mount Hector before turning southwest to run down a long valley in the Tararua Range. From the end of the valley it again turns southeast, flowing past the town of Featherston before reaching the northern shore of Lake Wairarapa.
