The Shrewsbury River is a short stream and navigable estuary, approximately 8 mi (13 km) long, in central New Jerseymarker in the United States.

It extends ENE from its head of navigation at Oceanportmarker to its confluence with the Navesink Rivermarker estuary, then entering 1 mi (1.6 km) north in a narrow channel to Sandy Hook Baymarker at Highlandsmarker. The south shore runs about the entire length of the northern border of Long Branchmarker. The estuary is protected from the open Atlantic Ocean on its eastern side by a long barrier peninsula that extends north to become Sandy Hookmarker. Jersey Shore resort communities on the peninsula include Monmouth Beachmarker and Sea Brightmarker. On the inner side of the estuary, the community of Rumsonmarker on the end of the peninsula separating the Shrewsbury and Navesink estuaries is among the wealthiest communities in the United States.

The estuary provides a popular marina for pleasure craft and recreational fishing.
