Waimakariri Gorge

Waimakariri Gorge

The Waimakariri Gorge is located on the Waimakariri River in inland Canterbury in New Zealand's South Island.

Like its neighbour, the Rakaia River, the Waimakariri runs through wide shingle beds for much of its length, but is forced through a narrow canyon as it approaches the Canterbury Plains.

Much of the gorge is followed by the Midland line.
