Course and features
The Sandy Creek (technically a river) rises approximately 19 kilometres (12 mi) east by north of the locality of Tallimba, west of the town of West Wyalong. The creek flows generally southwest for approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi), joined by two minor tributaries, before becoming indefinite approximately 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) west of the locality of Welcome Tank and northeast of Binya as the creek approaches the Mirrool Creek (itself a tributary of the Lachlan River). The Sandy Creek descends 146 metres (479 ft) over its 72-kilometre (45 mi) course.
