Lake Macquarie History

Melaleuca Creek, Morisset and Dora Creek

This creek runs from the top of Morisset township northwards in to the swampy area next to the Salvation Army’s land and then into Dora Creek at the end of Baker Street, Dora Creek. This name was suggested by the Dora Creek Catchment Group. Apparently the locals call this creek Melaleuca Creek after the predominant tree species that line its banks. This creek name was selected in 2005.
