The Styx River is a short river in Queensland. It enters Broad Sound south of the Port of St Lawrence. The river is crossed by both the Bruce Highway and North Coast railway line.

The Styx River is wide at its mouth, resulting in a tidal bore at certain times. Much of the river valley remains natural leaving the water quality in a healthy state.[1]
