Course and features
The Queensland branch of the Severn River rises on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range south of Stanthorpe. The river flows generally south by west, through the Sundown National Park, and forms its confluence with the Dumaresq River near the Tenterfield Creek and Glenlyon Dam Road, east of the settlement of Riverside. From the point where the rivers form their confluence marks part of the border between Queensland and New South Wales. The Dumaresq flows into the Macintyre River. The Queensland branch of the Severn River is often noted as the ultimate source of the Darling River. The Severn River descends 409 metres (1,342 ft) over its 90-kilometre (56 mi) course.
