The Jerra Jerra Creek, a perennial stream[1] of the Murray River catchment within the Murray-Darling basin, is located in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia.

Course and features[edit]

The Jerra Jerra Creek (technically a river[1]) rises on the Great Dividing Range, south southeast of The Rock, and flows generally south through the locality of Cookardinia before reaching its confluence with the Billabong Creek north east of Fellow Hills Railway Station, near the midpoint between Holbrook and Culcairn. The creek descends 125 metres (410 ft) over its 27-kilometre (17 mi) course.[2]
