Tycannah Creek also flows through the village of Terry Hie Hie. In times of flood, Tycannah Creek has been known to inundate some houses. This last happened during the November 2011 floods and the February 2012 floods. In February 2012 floods 12 people were ordered to evacuate from their homes during to a large downpour in the Tycannah Creek catchment.
Local Aboriginal groups and conservationists were petitioning as recently as 2005 for a 160 square kilometre national park to be set aside and added to the schedule of Aboriginal ownership. The park would comprise seven existing State forests and one existing nature reserve. Logging ceased in the Mission State Forest during 2004. The area is seen as "the last big bit of bush that Aboriginal people can connect with in the Moree area".
