Meet your friendly local guide and set off for this walk just after dawn or before dusk. The trek to the hidden waterhole is short but it’s steep and challenging, and suitable only for people with a good level of mobility. Only about 5% of the population have been lucky enough to see a platypus in the wild. The elusive platypus is a fascination - a blend of characteristics of different animals into one extraordinary and iconic creature. The serene destination of our walk is home to several happy platypuses of different sizes, so be sure to join us for this unforgettable and rewarding experience!
