Bokhara River, a watercourse that is part of the Barwon catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the South Downs region of Queensland, flowing downstream into the north–western slopes of New South Wales, Australia.

The river rises at the Balonne River south of Dirranbandi, within the state of Queensland, and is one of several branches of the Balonne that flows generally south–west, joined by five minor tributaries, before reaching its confluence with the Barwon River, downstream from Brewarrina;[2] dropping 58 metres (190 ft) over its course of 347 kilometres (216 mi).[1]

The Bokhara River, from its source towards its mouth, flows past the towns of Hebel and Goodooga.
