We, 2 couples, came because I read you could see platypus and devils in the wild here and those were my top animals I wanted to see in OZ. We saw both of them as well as spotted tailed quolls, brush tailed possums, and pademelons. Make sure you bring food to make dinner with you, we came from cradle mountain and there is nothing on the way (we picked up food, pasta and veggies so it would not spoil, before we got to cradle mountain) full kitchen for cooking. The fireplace was the best since it had rained all day on us while we were walking at cradle mountain we were able to warm up and dry all of our wet things by the fire. When we got there the fire was already lit for us which was very nice and they had emailed about us coming earlier to see the platypus, who was showing up before we had arranged for us to get there originally. It takes a while to get here, it really is in the middle of nowhere, but it is very worth it! Len took us out to see the platypus and was a wealth of info on all the animals and nature as we walked to and from. He came back to put the meat on our porch that night so we could see all of the animals that come out at night that most people never see. He also gave us a check sheet so we could help them participate in knowing what was coming and what devils, they have some different markings and we filled out where markings were on the sheet and times things came, which was neat. The pademelons came right away at dusk and shortly after the possums around 7. The quoll took a few more hours to show up around 9. Then quolls and possums came back and forth the rest of the night. We were so tired we could not stay up past 10 so I set and alarm to get up at 11:30 to check for the devils. No sign of devils at 11:30 so I kept watching and going back to bed and listening and I got up about 10 times in that half hour to check because I kept hearing feet on the deck. Finally when I was about to give up I heard crunching next to the window of bones breaking, which was a very different noise then the others were making so I got up one more time and there he was! I woke up everyone else and we watched him for awhile, it was great. He came back one more time to get the rest of the chicken. We all thought this was our favorite place we stayed out of our almost 3 weeks in OZ, it was very cosy. We would have liked to have stayed a second night, but I had packed alot into our schedule and had no more time to give. We did not have time for the cave or trails in the area so a second dat there would have been great.
