Redbank Creek is a small stream located in North Richmond, New South Wales. The creek originates in the hills on the eastern side of Grose Vale and is crossed by Bells Line of Road at North Richmond before flowing into the Hawkesbury River near Terrace Road.
On the southern side of the creek is the housing estate known as Redbank which includes 1,400 private dwellings and the RSL LifeCare Kingsford Smith Village and the RSL LifeCare Ron Middleton VC Gardens.
The estate is built on several hundred acres of land developed by Sydney engineer Percival Alfred Yeomans who was a pioneer in sustainable agriculture. His farm was known as Yobarnie and he instigated the Keyline method of farming practice which consisted of land contours and a series of staged dams which ensured a reliable water supply. Some of the dams are still in situ on the estate.
A mostly perennial stream rising on the eastern slopes of Box Hill about 2.6km south west of Kurrajong. It flows generally east for about 11km to its confluence with the Hawkesbury River about 1.4km below the Kurrajong Rd bridge at North Richmond.
