Book Now - Platypus Paddling Tour

This is a unique opportunity to see Platypus in the wild.
Your tour commences on private property and the river meanders through farming and forest country many burrows along this stretch of river and the platypuses have many burrows in the banks of the river. You will get to observe them as they feed and lay in the river shallows.
We believe there is nowhere on the planet where you will see more of these unique animals at home.
This is a unique experience that you will remember forever!
This location disproves the theory that these wonderful creatures can only be seen at dawn and dusk!

Average Duration: 2 hours

About Kimberley

Kimberley is a small rural hamlet mid way between Launceston and Cradle Mtn. In it's early history Kimberley housed convicts in a convict probation station, whilst in it's heyday the local population supported a Pub, Butcher, General Store, School and a Railway Station.
The biggest thing in town these days is Cradle Country Adventures.
