Course and features

The Peelwood Creek (technically a river[1]) rises in remote country north of Binda and Crookwell, sourced by runoff from the Great Dividing Range. The creek flows generally north, then northeast, then northwest by west, before reaching its confluence with the Tuena Creek, itself a tributary of the Lachlan River, east of Bigga, south of Tuena, and southeast of Woodstock. The creek descends 346 metres (1,135 ft) over its 33-kilometre (21 mi) course.[2]
