The Dry River is a perennial river[1] of the Mitchell River catchment, located in the Alpine region of the Australian state of Victoria.

Features and location[edit]

The Dry River rises below Minogues Lookout, part of the Great Dividing Range, approximately midway between Eildon and Omeo in the Alpine National Park. The river flows generally north by east, before reaching its confluence with the Wonnangatta River, southwest of Mount Selwyn, in the Shire of Wellington. The river descends 885 metres (2,904 ft) over its 14-kilometre (8.7 mi) course.[2]
