A ½ day tour with an experienced wildlife guide.
We suggest you bring with you:
Pickup from your hotel is after breakfast. We travel up onto the southern Tablelands.
On the way up through the Southern Tablelands we will call in at some sites where Tree Kangaroo’s are seen regularly. A short nature walk will be taken through the rainforest in the hope of seeing them.
The platypus at the site we are visiting are regularly seen throughout the day. Sometimes a bit of patience is required as they are wild animals.
Platypus – these bizarre aquatic mammals belong to one of two families of egg laying mammals – the other is the echidnas which are also found in Australia. The male platypus has a poisonous spur on its hind leg, no other mammal is equipped with poison barbs. They can be found in practically any clean stream on the Tablelands but are shy and crepuscular so are difficult to see.
This will be near to the platypus site and viewing can continue after lunch if required.
