The Rush Creek, a perennial stream of the Hawkesbury-Nepean catchment, is located in the Outer Metropolitan Sydney region of New South Wales, Australia.


The Rush Creek (officially designated as a river[1]) rises about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) south-east of the Parr Spur Ridge Trigonometry Station, near Mile Ridge and east of the Putty Road. The river flows generally north-east by east before reaching its confluence with Webbs Creek in remote country within the Parr State Conservation Area, south-west of Upper Macdonald. The river descends 265 metres (869 ft) over its 20-kilometre (12 mi) course.[3]
