The Bedford Creek, a perennial stream of the Hawkesbury-Nepean catchment, is located in the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales, Australia.


The Bedford Creek (officially designated as a river[3]) rises near Bodington Hill, between Bullaburra and Wentworth Falls, and flows generally south-east and south, before reaching its confluence with the Glen Erskine Creek to form the Erskine Creek, in remote country south-east of Mount Gibson, south of Woodford. The river descends 267 metres (876 ft) over its 22-kilometre (14 mi) course.[2]

The river is entirely contained within the world heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.[4]
