Clarence River (gravel)

 Clarence River (gravel)   

The Clarence River (Maori: Waiau Toa) is a major river which flows through the Kaikoura Ranges in the northeast of New Zealand’s South Island. At roughly 209 kilometres (130 mi) long, it is the longest river in Canterbury and the eighth longest in New Zealand. The Maori name for the river, Waiau Toa, points to a legend regarding this river and the nearby Waiau Uwha River. Both of these rivers have their sources on either side of the St James Range, separated by roughly 2 kilometres (1.2 mi), before flowing in different directions and ending 80 kilometres (50 mi) apart at their mouths. According to legend, the Waiau Toa and Waiau Uwha were lovers who for reasons unknown were turned into their respective rivers, with the increased flow from snow melt said to represent their weeping from being separated.
