Very pretty place for a picinic but the water was still quite high after the downpour a couple of weeks ago when some of the roads around Condamine were closed due to flooding. Pretty flowering water lilies at Dogwood Creek in Miles. I have included a before and after photo of a cottage John painted at the Condamine caravan park - this cottage was under water in the floods and is an original cottage on the property and it is amazing what a coat of paint does. The owners have a couple of possums to get out of the roof before they can let people start using the room!!!!!!
