“Learning experience”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We learned so much about the platypus on our visit. The best part is that you don't have to be quiet around them as they apparently like noise, so a perfect place to take the kids.

Best chance for Platypus, shy creature but amazingly nice, ask for Allen's night walk to really see what is out there.
From fly fox to Tree Kangaroo, with stories and endless knowledge. Tour Must be taken.

“Platypus Viewing Platform”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

The viewing platform is just off the main road passing through Yungaburra. Yes, you do have a good chance of seeing a platypus. The best time to view is early morning or dusk but they can be seen at other times, if not from the platform then elsewhere along the creek. We were very excited to see one mid morning under the adjoining road bridge. A map of a very pleasant walk along the bank of the creek is available from the nearby information centre.
