The Pinchgut Creek, a non–perennial stream[2] that is part of the Murrumbidgee catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the South West Slopes region of New South Wales, Australia.

Course and features[edit]

The Pinchgut Creek (technically a river[2]) rises below Dudauman Range, part of the Great Dividing Range. The creek flows generally southwest before reaching its confluence with the Houlaghans Creek (itself a tributary of the Murrumbidgee River), near the locality of Junee Reefs. The creek descends 94 metres (308 ft) over its 31-kilometre (19 mi) course.[1]
