Course

Bylong River rises in the central tablelands of the Capertee Valley, within Wollemi National Park, on the north-western slopes of the Great Dividing Range, below Goat Mountain, and flows generally north-east, joined by seven tributaries, including the Growee River, before reaching its confluence with the Goulburn River, north of the village of Bylong. The river descends 530 metres (1,740 ft) over its 48 kilometres (30 mi) course. [2]

The Goulburn River eventually flows into the Hunter River, a major waterway which flows into the Tasman Sea at Newcastle. [3]
