Little Murray River (New South Wales), an anabranch[1] of the Murray River and part of the Murray-Darling basin, is located in the western Riverina region of south western New South Wales, Australia.

The river rises northwest of Barham in New South Wales and flows generally northwest before reaching its confluence with the Murray River near Gonn Crossing in Victoria. Little Murray River and the Murray River enclose Campbells Island, that forms part of the Campbells Island State Forest.
