In the dry season Cockatoo Creek can become a series of waterholes. Both Ski Lake and Cockatoo Creek are anabranches of the mighty Fitzroy River. The Great Northern Highway crosses over the creek with a concrete bridge designed for the great variation in seasonal river heights. Flooding here during the summer wet season is common and birdlife becomes prolific. Many travellers like to find a spot to stop on the edges of the river just before or after the bridge to observe the wildlife.
