Georges River, formerly known as Tucoerah River is an intermediate tide dominated drowned valley estuary located to the south and west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

The source of the Georges River is from the land surrounding the Dharawal Nature Reserve, approximately 80 kilometres (50 mi) to the south-west of Sydney central business district near the town of Appin and travels for approximately 96 kilometres (60 mi) in a north and then easterly direction to its mouth at Botany Bay, about 5km from the Tasman Sea. The Georges River is the main tributary of Botany Bay; with the Cooks River being a secondary tributary.
