Course and features

The Adjungbilly Creek (technically a river) rises in the Adjungbilly Swamp, near Tumorrama, on the western slopes of the Australian Alps, and flows generally northwest in a highly meandering course before reaching its confluence with the Tumut River, near Darbalara, approximately 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) above its junction with the Murrumbidgee River. The creek descends 664 metres (2,178 ft) over its 46-kilometre (29 mi) course.
