The Delatite River is a tributary of the Goulburn River in Australia.

The river rises between the ski resort mountains of Mount Stirling and Mount Buller on the Western edge of the Victorian Alps. Flowing generally westwards, it passes the town of Merrijig before reaching Lake Eildon, an impoundment of the Goulburn and Delatite Rivers.

Named after Delotite, wife of the local indigeous leader Beolite, the leader of the yowung-illum-baluks of the Taungurung people.
