The Tuglow River, a perennial river that is part of the Hawkesbury-Nepean catchment, is located in the Central Tablelands region of New South Wales, Australia.

Course and features[edit]

The Tuglow River rises on the eastern slopes of the Great Dividing Range south of Shooters Hill, and flows generally south southeast and then northeast, before reaching its confluence with the Kowmung River, near its junction with the Hollanders River. The river descends 229 metres (751 ft) over its 22-kilometre (14 mi) course.[2]

In its lower reaches, the river adjoins Nattai National Park.[2]
