Course and features[edit]

Little Goolengook River rises below Bee Tree Hill, in remote country in the Errinundra National Park, and flows generally south and then east, before reaching its confluence with the Goolengook River, northwest of the town of Cann River in the Shire of East Gippsland. The river descends 506 metres (1,660 ft) over its 7-kilometre (4.3 mi) course.[3]
