The White Rock River is a river in the South Canterbury area of New Zealand. It rises south of the 1,525 metres (5,003 ft) Mount Nimrod / Kaumira in the Hunter Hills and flows northeast then north to joint the Pareora River.[1]

The white rocks are a cliff face with many layers of rock which are millions of years old, often used for study from scientists or school students.[citation needed]
