Course and features[edit]

The Burra Creek (technically a river[2]) rises below Keewong Hill, northeast of Michelago, part of the Great Dividing Range, and flows generally northeast before reaching its confluence with the Queanbeyan River near the locality of London Bridge. The Queanbeyan River is a tributary of the Murrumbidgee River. The Burra Creek descends 144 metres (472 ft) over its 16-kilometre (9.9 mi) course.[1]
