The headwaters of the river rise on the Cape York Peninsula approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) from the west coast and flows south through uninhabited country along the coastal plain and eventually discharges into Archer Bay, along with the Archer and Watson River, just north of Aurukun and then onto the Gulf of Carpentaria. Four tributaries contribute to the Ward; Coconut Creek, Tappelbang Creek, Sandy Creek and Possum Creek.
