Bettowynd Creek, a partly perennial stream of the Moruya River catchment, is located in the Southern Tablelands and South Coast regions of New South Wales, Australia.

Course and features[edit]

Bettowynd Creek rises below Benmanang Range, about 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) south southwest of the village of Majors Creek, on the eastern slopes of the Great Dividing Range. The river flows generally northeast and then southeast before reaching its confluence with the Deua River in remote country south of the Monga National Park.[2] The river descends 311 metres (1,020 ft) over its 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) course.[3]
