The Eyre Creek is an ephemeral watercourse located in the Mid North region of the Australian state of South Australia.

Course and features

The creek rises east of Mount Horrocks and drains south through Watervale and Leasingham before reaching its confluence with the Wakefield River north of Auburn in the Clare Valley. The creek runs along Main North Road.

The creek was named in honour of Edward John Eyre, who explored the area in 1839 during one of his expeditions.
