Course and features
The Albert River rises below Madalya, on the eastern slopes of the Strzelecki Ranges, in a state forestry area. The river flows in a highly meandering course generally east by south, joined by the Jack River and one minor tributary, before reaching its mouth and emptying into the Corner Inlet of Bass Strait near the town of Port Albert in the Shire of Wellington. The river descends 211 metres (692 ft) over its 39-kilometre (24 mi) course.
