Bredbo River, a perennial stream that is part of the Murrumbidgee catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the Monaro region of New South Wales, Australia.
Location and features
The river rises on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range at Bald Hill and flows generally west, joined by seven tributaries including Strike-a-Light River, before reaching its confluence with the Murrumbidgee River about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) south–east of Bredbo; descending 688 metres (2,257 ft) over its 52-kilometre (32 mi) course.
The river flows through the town of Bredbo; from where it draws its name, an Aboriginal word meaning joining of waters.
