SPOT A PLATYPUS, EUNGELLA NA­TIONAL PARK

Australian Geographic - - Wild Australia -

Head 80km in­land from Mackay to Eungella at the head of the Pioneer Val­ley. Shrouded in mist, this rainforest haven is one of the most re­li­able places to ob­serve wild platy­puses. For the best chance, walk to the view­ing decks at Bro­ken River at dawn or dusk and look for bub­bles, which these monotremes pro­duce as they for­age on the river bot­tom.
