Course and features

The Jeir Creek (technically a river[2]) rises below Mount Spring, part of the Great Dividing Range, northeast of the village of Hall and approximately 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) north of the northwestern border between New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. The creek flows generally northwest by west then west by south before reaching its confluence with the Murrumbidgee River southwest of the village of Hall. The creek descends 408 metres (1,339 ft) over its 26-kilometre (16 mi) course.[1]

The river is crossed by the Barton Highway north of the village of Hall.

The Jeir Creek Winery, located in the area, is named after the creek.[3][4]
