The Barrier River is a river in the Mount Aspiring National Park at the southern tip of the West Coast Region of New Zealand. It is a tributary of the Pyke River, which it enters about 1 kilometre (0.6 mi) south of Lake Wilmot. The Barrier River is fed by three glaciers and ice fields:

  • Demon Gap Icefall (North Branch)
  • Silver Glacier (via Silver Stream, between the branches)
  • Barrier Ice Stream (South Branch)
