Course and features

Styx River rises below Point Lookout in the Snowy Range, a spur of the Great Dividing Range which forms part of the eastern escarpment of the Northern Tablelands, south southeast of Ebor, and flows generally southwest, joined by two minor tributaries before reaching its confluence with the Chandler River, south southwest of Jeogla. The river descends 1,120 metres (3,670 ft) over its 60 kilometres (37 mi) course;[1] rapidly descending into a deep gorge where it meets the Chandler River.[2]
