The Richenda River is a river in the Kimberley of Western Australia.

The headwaters of the river rise in the King Leopold Range near Mount Broome and flow in a southerly direction. The river then flows through Richenda gorge and turns west, flowing through Tunnel Creek National Park and continuing westward until discharging into the Lennard River to the east of Windjana Gorge.

The only tributary to the Richenda river is Dyson Creek.

The traditional owners of the area that the river flows through are the Bunuba people.[2]
