Moleson Creek is a community on the Corentyne River in the East Berbice-Corentyne region of Guyana, located at 5°30′0″N 57°15′0″W / 5.50000°N 57.25000°W / 5.50000; -57.25000. It is north of Orealla Mission, 10 km (6.2 mi) south of Corriverton, and approximately 90 km (56 mi) from New Amsterdam.

Since 1998, the CANAWAIMA ferry connects Moleson Creek with South Drain in Suriname.[1] This is the only legal connection between the two countries, but before the repavement of the road between South Drain and Nieuw Nickerie many travelers preferred to take a back-track route.[2]
