  We came here to view the platypus. The history of the park is that this property was previously farmed with freshwater Crayfish, and platypus from nearby creeks migrated into these dams as "craw" are their favourite food source. The $10 fee is quite reasonable. You...More

  The entrance to this place does not show its hidden beauty. However, it opens up into a very pleasant place to visit. The young man who took us on the tour to view platypus was very knowledgeable and we viewed platypus swimming around freely in...More

  This was the best burger with the lot. Really fresh with thick crunchy chips. $18, great value. Beautiful lake setting and friendly staff. We didn’t have time for the platypus walk.

  Only $10 to visit, and that's only if you see a platypus. We walked down to the lake with a staff member who had incredible knowledge. Only a short walk and we went early in the day so not a lot of people around. Saw...More

We’ve seen a juvenile female platypus today! She was so cute swimming in the lilies, that def made our day! Thanks to the guide we had, she gave us some valuable information about platypus and led us to the viewing point.

Great little place.. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any platypus but we still enjoyed having a coffee by the Lake served by very a freindly staff member (I believe he to be the owner or manager)... Worth dropping in for sure.

What a great place for everyone wanting to see the shy platypus. We had a fun couple of hours watching the platypus at this very pleasant location. A beautiful dam for the platypus and we saw 4 or 5 different animals - some up very close- 3-4 meters. A special mention to our young guide Matthew who give us a very informative introduction to these fascinating animals and tips for how to spot them. There is a good cafe there serving good hot & cold food. Can recommend both the coffee and cakes.

You need to buy a ticket to go view the platypus lair, however you only pay if you actually see anything. They were also kind enough to tell us beforehand if it was a good viewing day or not (at the time it wasn't), so we didn't have to waste time.
