The river rises in the Gregory Range near Bellfield and flows in a westerly direction, traversing tropical savanna plains and eventually discharging into the Norman River, south of Normanton. From source to mouth, the Clara River is joined by the Borer River, Snowy Creek and Yarraman Creek, and descends 404 metres (1,325 ft) over its 385-kilometre (239 mi) course.
The headwaters in the Gregory Range are made up of ephemeral water courses and stony ridges composed of sandstone and conglomerate. The vegetation in the area is open forest which changes to savannah and grasslands of the open floodplains. The river and stream banks support riparian vegetation dominated by Red River Gum and Coolabah trees.
