Course and features[edit]

Little River rises between the Mini Mini Range and Black Range within the Great Dividing Range, and flows generally east southeast, before reaching its confluence with the Coxs River on the south-western boundary of the Blue Mountains National Park, near Ironpot Mountain, within the Kanangra-Boyd National Park. The river descends 746 metres (2,448 ft) over its 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) course as it flows through the Jenolan State Forest.[2]
