The Macintyre River is a river in northern New South Wales, Australia, part of which forms the border with Queensland.

The headwaters of the Macintyre rise west of Guyra, on the Northern Tablelands, south of Glen Innes. The Macintyre River flows generally northwest, passing near the towns of Glen Innes, Inverell, Ashford and Yetman.

A few kilometers east of Boggabilla, the Macintyre converges with the Dumaresq River, which forms the border between the states of New South Wales and Queensland. The combined river, called the Macintyre, flows westward between Boggabilla and Goondiwindi, Queensland, forming the border between the states. Further west, the Macintyre turns to the south-west and eventually becomes the Barwon River. It is one of the headwaters of the Murray-Darling river system.

Tributaries of the Macintyre River include the Swanbrook Creek, which joins at Inverell, Severn River which joins near Ashford and the Dumaresq River which joins near Boggabilla. The waters of the Mole River, Weir River, Macintyre Brook, and Severn River (Queensland) also flow into the Macintyre River. This group of river is called the "Border Rivers" and is considered to be the headwaters of the Darling River ( although the Condamine River is longer ).

Pindari Dam is located on the Severn River just upstream from where it joins the Macintyre River.
