Fairhall River is a small river that flows north into the Opawa River near Rapaura. The river has its source in the Brancott Valley.

During summer, and a good part of the year, the riverbed is dry, however during the wetter winter season the river may rise substantially, as evidenced by debris, and a substantial area of bare shingle on the river bed.

The margins of the river bed are covered in introduced scrub including gorse and broom, however original native vegetation may have been manuka scrub.
