Course and features

The stream rises on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range and Australian Alps, approximately 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) southwest of Batlow. The stream flows generally north by west towards the town of Tarcutta where the creek is crossed by the Hume Motorway. From this point the river continues generally north by west towards the city of Wagga Wagga and reaches its confluence with the Murrumbidgee River, approximately 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) southeast of Oura.[2] The creek descends 435 metres (1,427 ft) over its 111-kilometre (69 mi) course.[1]
