We stayed here on a tour of Oz and were met at the coach stop by the owner of The Curtain Fig Hotel who drove us back to the hotel and was very welcoming. The room was very clean and cool and very well equipped with comfortable beds. She advised us that we should try to see the platypus which live nearby.
Later that afternoon we took her advice and spent an absolutely magical hour or so "platypus watching" at the nearby creek. We sat quietly on a bench all alone just waiting for dusk when the platypus come out and although they never appeared just about everything else did making the most amazing din! -there were fire flies, moths and who knows what else. As we got up to leave, we suddenly realised that there were about 25 other people sitting behind us just quietly drinking it all in as well. It was totally brilliant experience and one of the highlights of our tour.
We then dined at the nearby Swiss House (I think) restaurant which was excellent.
Although we only stayed here for one night in order to see the Undarra Lava Tubes next day, we wished we had spent more time here and would love to return someday,
Thanks for the memory.
