Pickup from your hotel will be after breakfast and will depend on where you are staying.
On the way up through the Southern Tablelands we will call in at some sites where Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroos are seen regularly. A short nature walk will be taken through the rainforest in the hope of seeing them.
While there are several sites we can check out to look for Platypus those at one site we will visit 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 known as monotremes – 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 often difficult to see.
This will be near to the platypus site and viewing can continue after lunch if required.
After lunch we will make our way back to your accommodation stopping at some interesting sites along the way if time allows.
