The headwaters of the Lyons rise just west of the Teano Range and flows south-west until it merges with the Gascoyne River of which it is a tributary. The two rivers meet near the township of Gascoyne Junction near the southern end of the Kennedy Range.
Several permanent pools of water exist along the river including Cattle Pool, Windarrie Pool and Bubbawonnara Pool.
The Lyons river is known as Mithering by the local Indigenous Australians the Malgaru people.
