Medway River

The Medway River is a tributary of the Awatere, flowing into the Awatere from the south, about 20km south-west of Seddon. The river flows through a region of uplifted marine sediment, with fossils frequently being exposed in the soft mudstone. The surrounding area is used for agriculture, but near the river there are significant patches of manuka and other native scrub, At the head of the valley is a private tramping track, the Awatere Tussock Track.

Support Marlborough Online

Did you know? Marlborough Online receives no funding to operate; all operating costs are paid for as a labour of love by one person. If everyone in Marlborough gave just $1 per year, it would fund significant content development and quality improvement. $2 would be enough to employ a second person part-time, and $3 would allow for two people to work full-time.
