The Mogo Creek, a perennial stream of the Hawkesbury-Nepean catchment, is located in the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales, Australia.

Course[edit]

The Mogo Creek (officially designated as a river[1]) rises below Mount Finch on the southern slopes of the Hunter Range, about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north-west of Mount McQuoid. The river flows generally south, then west, then south, joined by two minor tributaries, before reaching its confluence with the Macdonald River near St Albans Common, north of St Albans. The river descends 208 metres (682 ft) over its 31-kilometre (19 mi) course.[3]
