Rotunda Park #3

RP6

Looking downstream along Mia Mia Creek – very much an ephemeral stream

Another significant feature of the park is that it takes in the course of the Mia Mia Creek, a small, ephemeral watercourse that rises in the Muckleford bush to the north of Newstead. The catchment is now peppered with small dams and it’s pretty unusual to see a flow these days. A recent downpour, 50 mm or so in a couple of hours, sent a welcome flush down the creek.
