The Macquarie River Palawa: teenemairakunah (teen.ner.mair.rer.koon.ner) rises near Tooms Lake, flowing south and then north-west and through the town of Ross before flowing into the South Esk River near Longford. The traditional custodians of the Macquarie River Valley were the Tyerrernotepanner (chera-noti-pahner) Clan of the North Midlands Nation.[1] The Tyerrernotepanner were a nomadic people who traversed country from the Central Plateau to the Eastern Tiers but were recorded as inhabiting 'resorts' in the Macquarie Valley at Ross, Ellenthorpe Hall, Glen Morriston and Tooms Lake/moyenteleea.[2]

The Elizabeth, Isis and Lake rivers all are tributaries of the Macquarie.[3]
