The Belubula begins near Vittoria, between Bathurst and Orange. It flows south and west, joined by eight smaller streams. It flows into Carcoar Lake before reaching its mouth at the Lachlan River, east of Gooloogong. It drops 674 metres (2,211 ft) over its course of 165 kilometres (103 mi).
The name comes from the Indigenous Australian word for "stony river" or "big lagoon". The first people to live by the Belubula River are the Wiradjuri clan.
