Course and features
The river rises at the Balonne River south of Dirranbandi, within the state of Queensland, and is one of several branches of the Balonne that flows generally south–west, joined by five minor tributaries, before reaching its confluence with the Barwon River, downstream from Brewarrina. The river descends 58 metres (190 ft) over its 347-kilometre (216 mi) course.
The Bokhara River, from its source towards its mouth, flows past the towns of Hebel and Goodooga. Water from the river is used by farmers to irrigate a variety of crops, including barley, wheat and cotton.
