Course and features
Loch River rises below Roy Hill within the Great Dividing Range, in a remote state forestry area east northeast of Powelltown and southeast of Warburton East. The river flows generally north, then east, then south by east through the Loch Valley, before reaching its confluence with the Latrobe River at the locality of Noojee in the Shire of Baw Baw. The river descends 668 metres (2,192 ft) over its 19-kilometre (12 mi) course.
The Loch River sub-catchment area is managed by the West Gippsland Catchment Management Authority.
