Surrounded by untouched coastline, the Clarence is recognised as one of New Zealand’s iconic wilderness rivers.


  • The Clarence River flows for more than 200km from Lake Tennyson past the St James range, through New Zealand’s largest farm, the Molesworth Station, through a series of gorges between the seaward and inland Kaikoura ranges to the Pacific Ocean.
  • The Clarence River also supports several farming operations that have been handed down from generation to generation.
  • This stunning coffee table book will be published in a similar format to the highly successful Molesworth Station book (Harry Broad, Craig Potton, 2013).
