On the long weekend 26-28 January 2013, Little Bay received heavy rain from Cyclone Oswald, the first heavy falls at the bay since the June 2012 long weekend.

These photos taken at 4:00 PM on Monday 28 January 2012 demonstrate the heavy sediment load that again flowed into Little Bay from the middle creek.
