The Waiohine River is a river of the Wellington Region of New Zealand's North Island. It flows generally south from its origins in the Tararua Range south-east of Levin, turning south-east once it reaches the plains to the north of Lake Wairarapa. From here, the river flows through many channels and irrigation features, with some of its waters reaching the lake but most flowing into the Ruamahanga River south-east of Greytown.
