The Neales River is a watercourse located in the Far North region of the Australian state of South Australia.

The river is a tributary of Lake Eyre. The original Ghan railway crossed the Neales River floodplain over Algebuckina Bridge.

Neales River was named by explorer John McDouall Stuart after businessman and politician John Bentham Neales.
