Reviews, get directions and information for Awaroa River (Waikato River tributary)


There are also two other rivers with the same name, one in Northland, the other further south in Waikato (Kawhia Harbour).The Awaroa River is a short river in the Waikato Region of New Zealand's North Island. It flows east from its source in the dunes near Kariotahi Beach and Lake Puketi, then south from Waiuku joining with the Aka Aka Stream before reaching the Waikato in its tidal reaches close to Motutieke Island.The river is the Waikato's 11th most polluted out of 26.In the 1850s the Awaroa was an important link in the trade between Waikato and Auckland. It was navigated by waka and produce and/or canoes portaged to Manukau Harbour at Waiuku. A canal or tramway was considered as early as 1855. A 1921 report also considered a canal or railway, but also rejected them as too expensive for the likely traffic.
