The river rises in the hills to the southern side of the Yackrkine Range and flows in a westerly direction then past Muggerrugging Rock then it turn to the south-west and finally discharges into the Arthur River of which it is a tributary between the towns of Piesseville and Wagin.
The river's catchment falls within the Blackwood catchment's Beaufort zone as part of the Dellyanine system. The system is composed of undulating rises and low hills on granite and was previously a wandoo sheoak woodland but has now mostly been cleared for agriculture.
