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]
