Course and features

The Pudman Creek (technically a river[1]) rises approximately 21 kilometres (13 mi) north of Yass, sourced by runoff from the Great Dividing Range. The creek flows generally north by west, then northwest, before reaching its confluence with the Boorowa River, itself a tributary of the Lachlan River, east of Boorowa. The creek descends 195 metres (640 ft) over its 39-kilometre (24 mi) course.[2]
