Capertee River, a perennial stream[1] that is part of the Hawkesbury-Nepean catchment, is located in the Central Tablelands region of New South Wales, Australia.

Course[edit]

Capertee River rises on the Great Dividing Range, near Bogee, southeast of Kandos, formed by the confluence of the Tea Tree Creek and Brymair Creek, and flows through the Capertee Valley, generally to the south, east, and southeast, joined by seven minor tributaries, to its confluence with Wolgan River to form the Colo River, northeeast of Newnes. The river descends 363 metres (1,191 ft) over a course of 105 kilometres (65 mi).[2]
