The Adelong Creek, a perennial river[2] that is part of the Murrumbidgee catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the South West Slopes, and Riverina regions of New South Wales, Australia.

Course and features[edit]

The Adelong Creek (technically a river[2]) rises below Wondalga, southwest of Batlow sourced by runoff from the Australian Alps, part of the Great Dividing Range. The creek flows generally north through the towns of Adelong and Tumblong, joined by one minor tributary, before reaching its confluence with the Murrumbidgee River southwest of Gundagai. The creek descends 239 metres (784 ft) over its 46-kilometre (29 mi) course.[1]

The river is crossed by the Snowy Mountains Highway at Adelong; and the Hume Highway at Tumblong.
