NOTE: This is not the location of the Pentecost River Crossing on the Gibb River Road which is 10 km upstream. The river here is salt water and can be seen from the Karunjie Track. The Pentecost River is 118 km long. (See separate listing for the Pentecost River Crossing for the point where the Gibb River Road crosses the Pentecost River).

The Pentecost River rises in the Durack Range and flows north through El Questro Station where it joins the Chamberlain River, then continues north crossing the Gibb River Road, skirts the eastern edge of Drysdale River National Park and later discharges into the west arm of the Cambridge Gulf.

Tributaries of the Pentecost include the Chamberlain River, Salmond River, Gap Creek and Five Mile Creek. The Chamberlain and Salmond are both longer than the Pentecost.

The river is named after surveyor and geologist John Pentecost, who surveyed the river in 1882 on an expedition led by Michael Durack.
