The Georges Creek (formerly known as Georges River), a perennial stream[1] that is part of the Macleay River catchment, is located in the Northern Tablelands and Mid North Coast regions of New South Wales, Australia.

Course and features[edit]

Georges Creek rises below Point Lookout, on the western slopes of the Snowy Range, part of the Great Dividing Range, about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) south by east of Ebor, within the New England National Park. The river flows generally to the south southwest before reaching its confluence with the Macleay River at the rural locality of Georges Creek, 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) west southwest of Lower Creek,[1] situated on the Armidale Kempsey Road. The river descends 1,200 metres (3,900 ft) over its 53 kilometres (33 mi) course.[2]
