Forbes Creek is a neighbourhood in the south-east of the locality ().
Hay Cottage was originally built about 1870 by Ernest Goertz. The cottage later passed to Charles Hay who raised a family there. The construction of the North Pine Dam in the early 1970s required the resumption of the cottage's land. In 1989 the cottage was relocated to 27 William Street in Dayboro and is occupied by Hay Cottage Arts and Crafts Association Inc.
Forbes Creek Provisional School opened on 20 August 1880. On 1 January 1909, it became Forbes Creek State School. It closed in 1960. It was just north of the North Pine River in the vicinity of Rush Creek Road (approx ); this area is now on the foreshores of Lake Samsonvale.
There are no schools in Rush Creek. The nearest government primary school is Dayboro State School in neighbouring Dayboro to the west. The nearest government secondary school is Bray Park State High School in Bray Park to the south-east.
