The Blakney Creek, a mostly–perennial river[3] that is part of the Lachlan sub-catchment of the Murrumbidgee catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the South West Slopes region of New South Wales, Australia.

Course and features[edit]

The Blakney Creek (technically a river[3]) rises north northeast of the Yass Junction, on the south western slopes of the Great Dividing Range, and flows generally northeast before reaching its confluence with the Lachlan River near Tarcoola. The creek descends 110 metres (360 ft) over its 31-kilometre (19 mi) course.[1]
