Course and features[edit]

Yowaka River rises on the eastern slopes of the Bold Granite Range, southeast of Wyndham and flows generally south, east, and than northeast, joined by one minor tributary before reaching its confluence with the Pambula River within Pambula Lake. The river descends 290 metres (950 ft) over its 22 kilometres (14 mi) course.[2]

The Princes Highway crosses the river between Pambula and Eden.[2]
