Course and features

The river rises on the north western side of the Fiery Range in the Snowy Mountains at 1,330 metres (4,360 ft) and flows generally north west, joined by five minor tributaries towards its mouth at the confluence with the Tumut River at Tumut; dropping 1,060 metres (3,480 ft) over the course of the river's length of 56 kilometres (35 mi).[1]

The river flows through the town of Goobarragandra; and the Hume and Hovell Walking Track follows the river for a short duration, about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) south of Tumut.[3]

There are large waterfalls and rapids along this river. There are "camping" spots along the Goobarragandra River as well.
