Course and features[edit]

The Geehi River rises below Mount Jagungal, part of Strumbo Range within the Kosciuszko National Park, and flows generally southwest before reaching its confluence with the Swampy Plain River, below Mount Youngal, near the locality of Geehi. The river descends 1,450 metres (4,760 ft) over its 47 kilometres (29 mi) course.[2]

The Alpine Way crosses the Geehi River near its confluence with the Swampy Plain River.
