Goulter River

The Goulter River is a river in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. It rises in the Richmond Range near Lake Chalice. The lake was formed by a landslip about 2000 years ago, which dammed the river. The lake has no outlet, but water seeps through the landslip rubble into the Goulter.[1] The river flows counter-clockwise around Mount Patriarch to join the Wairau River.[2]

The river was visited by Cyrus Goulter, Joseph Ward and Harry Redwood in 1857. Goulter later became Speaker of the Marlborough District Council.[3]

Goulter River runs through native bush and contains trout suitable for fishing. A walkway runs the length of the river.[4]
