Not Just Farms - Lotus Creek.

There is not a lot to see driving the old Bruce Hwy from Marlborough to Sarina. A school and camp draft grounds at Clarke Creek and a service station caravan park at Lotus Creek, is about all.

The school and library at Clarke Creek were inundated but the rushing flood waters trashed the Lotus Creek servo and park, washing most everything down the creek. The elderly owner says he will restore the place but his health is not the best. So getting fuel a cool drink or an ice-cream is now a big trip for the locals either to Sarina, Marlborough or Middlemount.
