Location and features
The river rises in the Strzelecki Ranges south of Gunyah Gunyah and flows generally south through steep mountainous terrain in the Strzelecki State Forest in a highly meandering course, until it breaks out into open farmland, joined by one minor tributary, before emptying into the river mouth of Corner Inlet at Port Franklin, and then spilling into Bass Strait. The river descends 452 metres (1,483 ft) over its combined 33-kilometre (21 mi) course.
There are many good fishing spots with good public access.
