Mistake Creek is a locality in Isaac Region, Queensland, Australia.[1][2] It has a primary school, which describes itself as "the only school for at least 70 kilometres", and there are other local organisations including Mistake Creek Progress Association and the Mistake Creek Playgroup.[3] The school opened in 24 January, 1983. [4] In 2013 the school had 11 students.[5] The district takes its name from Mistake Creek, a tributary of the Belyando River, which was so named after Jerimiah Rolfe, an early local settler, believed his station to be on that river but later discovered it was on a tributary, which he named Mistake Creek.[6]
