On 14 October 1999 a 40 minute storm dumped 76 mm of rain and hail on the Western Liverpool Plains region around Mullaley causing damage to dozens of farms. The heavy rain that fell caused localised flooding. Numerous homes were flooded as hail-clogged roof guttering overflowed.

According to the entry sign (2008) there are 102 people in the village. The village now has a public school, sports ground, roadhouse, hotel, bus service, store, park and a stone war memorial with an honour roll.[2] The Goolhi Graves on Old Goolhi Station, Mullaley have been placed on the Register of the National Estate.[3]
