Geography[edit]

The Russell River forms the western border of East Russell. In the north Russell River meets the Mulgrave River at Mutchero Inlet which marks the northern extent of the locality. Much of the coastal area is protected within the Russell River National Park. Several point in the park reach elevations above 600 m. High Island, Normanby Island, Round Island, Russell Island and several offshore reefs belong to the Frankland Group National Park. The eastern fringe of the locality has some areas of farming. A strip of houses has developed in the north at Point Constantine.
