River Lett, a perennial stream of the Hawkesbury-Nepean catchment, is located in the Central Tablelands region of New South Wales, Australia.

Course[edit]

River Lett rises on the southern slopes of the Bell Range, below Bell, approximately 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) north of Mount Victoria, and flows generally west south-west, joined by two minor tributaries, before reaching its confluence with the Coxs River, at Glenroy, south-west of the historical settlement of Hartley. The river course is approximately 10 kilometres (6.2 mi).[1]

The Great Western Highway traverses the River Lett near Hartley, at the bottom of the ascent of River Lett Hill.[2] The remains of an old timber bridge that carried traffic on the Great Western Highway over the River Lett can be found near the settlement of Hartley.[3]
