The Pinchgut Creek (technically a river[2]) rises below Dudauman Range, part of the Great Dividing Range. The creek flows generally southwest before reaching its confluence with the Houlaghans Creek (itself a tributary of the Murrumbidgee River), near the locality of Junee Reefs. The creek descends 94 metres (308 ft) over its 31-kilometre (19 mi) course.[1]
