Course and features
Goolengook River rises below Mount Ellery, near Ellery Camp, in remote country in the Errinundra National Park, and flows generally south by east, joined by the Little Goolengook and Arte rivers and one minor tributary, before reaching its confluence with the Bemm River, west of the town of Cann River in the Shire of East Gippsland. The river descends 353 metres (1,158 ft) over its 27-kilometre (17 mi) course.
The Goolengook River sub-catchment area is managed by the East Gippsland Catchment Management Authority.
