The Shotover River is located in the Otago region of the South Island of New Zealand.[1] The name correctly suggests that this 75-kilometre (47 mi) long river is fast flowing, with numerous rapids.

The river is used for commercial white water rafting trips and jet boating rides which operate out of the nearby tourist resort of Queenstown. There is also a canyon swing site on the river a short distance upriver from Arthurs Point.
