Reviewed 19 June 2014

We didn't see a platypus unfortunately, but enjoyed the walk very much.
We went to the viewing platform, then drove back to the creek & had a lovely walk along the creek over the swing bridge. It's well maintained, very peaceful & pretty. There's the odd seat nestled amongst the trees on the river bank for platypus spotting or just to sit & enjoy the beauty.

We parked and viewed a platypus almost immediately at the viewing platform. We then ventured down the Peterson Creek trail. It was a pleasant walk. On our way back, we saw another platypus in the creek. Look for the bubbles on the surface of the water to help you find them. They will surface nearby.

Might need to go for a walk up and down the creek to find some. The viewing platform is a short stroll from town.

My advice would be to get a map so you can enjoy searching for platypus and the walk along the scenic Peterson Creek, over the suspension bridge and back to the village.
