King Scrub has some areas of rich farmlands which are now being developed as estates. Currently the most dominant estates are Avalon Downs and Park Lands estate. Both developed in early 2000.[citation needed]

King Scrub has a road which often floods called Fingerboard Road. This road is used by the local weather station as a flood indicator.[citation needed] Fingerboard Road is an important transport artery for residents in Mount Mee and beyond as it avoids going through the Dayboro town centre.[citation needed]
