The White River is in the South Island of New Zealand.

It drains from the eastern flanks of the Southern Alps into the Waimakariri River. It is accessible by getting to Klondike Corner on State Highway 73, following the Waimakariri up to Carrington Hut, and turning west. The most common reason for travelling up the White river is to get to Barker Hut, a base for climbing Mts Murchison, Wakeman and Harper. Following the river to its source takes the traveller to White Col.
