The Retreat River, a perennial stream[1][2] that is part of the Lachlan catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the central western region of New South Wales, in eastern Australia.

The Retreat River rises on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range, near Shooters Hill, and flows generally to the south-west, before reaching its confluence with the Abercrombie River, near Hadley.

The river flows adjacent to the Abercrombie River National Park, with access at The Sink campground.[3]
