The river rises to the North of Reservoir Hill and flows in a southerly direction until it discharges into Moates Lake. This lake drains into Gardner Lake and eventually onto Two Peoples Bay.
The average rainfall in the catchment area is 1,100 millimetres (43 in) with most falling in the winter months. The catchment mostly consists of Albany Blackbutt and Sheoak forest. Approximately one third of the catchment has been cleared for agriculture.
The name was first recorded in 1913 by a surveyor and is thought to be of Aboriginal origin.
The river is home to the endangered fish, the Trout Minnow (Galaxias truttaceus) which only occurs between the Goodga and the Angove River. In 2003, the first vertical slot fishway in Western Australia was installed in the river.
