is a creek of middle size, its banks covered with Cypresspine thickets. It is wrong to give names to places from local caracters. Nearer the junction 4-5 species of Acacia grew which induced me to call the creek Acacia creek. When we crossed it this time,
not very few Acacia's limbs were to be seen. Nor did we find any Dogwood or nothing to speak of at Dogwood creek, on which we camped in lat. 26.24.32, our former camping place being 2½ miles lower down in lat. 26.26. I rode down to it with Wominar. This creek had proved extremely rich in plants when I passed it first and we found several fine plants again in blossom; for instance the pink Crassula, the little Portalauca. Kylomela grew a middle sized tree, chelictous, and a Lencopagor with rosecoloured berry [indecipherable] in the cantor; a species of Pimelia was new to me. - the grasstree abundant.
The 9th we travelled NNW about 9 miles over a thickly wooded country, particularly with Cypresspine thickets. The Rosemary myrtle which we saw yesterday first was abundant; the rusty gum was first observed. A fine specimen of Haker lorea. attracted our notice. 5 miles from the camp we came on a large rocky creek, which is no doubt Dogwood creek itself or a WNW tributory, for I am inclined to believe that Dried beef creek is the main branch of it. Some patches of fine grassy open Ironbark forest. The Ironbark has lanceolate but glaucous leaves and appears to be very different from the common one. We crossed the creek on a rocky bar with remarkably deep rocky holes.
4 miles farther we came to another creek going down to the ESE and probably joining the main branch of Dogwood creek. I went with Wominar to look for Dried beef creek. 2 miles N by W we came to a creek going SE, which was joined by 2 from the westward, the most Northern one of which I followed to its head, which is about 7 miles NW by W. from our present camp.
