The Richenda River is a river in the Kimberley of Western Australia.

The headwaters of the river rise in the King Leopold Range near Mount Broome then flows in a sotherly direction then flows through Richenda gorge and turns west. The river then flows through Tunnel Creek National Park and continues westward until discharging into the Lennard River to the east of Windjana Gorge.

The only tributary to the Richenda river is Dyson Creek.

The traditional owners of the area that the river flows through are the Bunuba people.[2]
