Course

The Capertee River rises on the Great Dividing Range, near Bogee, southeast of Kandos, formed by the confluence of the Tea Tree Creek and Brymair Creek, and flows through the Capertee Valley, generally to the south, east, and southeast, joined by seven minor tributaries, to its confluence with Wolgan River to form the Colo River, northeast of Newnes. The river descends 363 metres (1,191 ft) over its 105-kilometre (65 mi) course.[2]
