Mooball Creek catchment is highly disturbed. Several smaller creeks drain the catchment, of which about two thirds has been modified. Cattle and sugarcane production are the main agricultural practices in this area. Parts of the upper catchment in and around Mooball National Park remain forested, and make up about one third of the land use.
