Rainforest next to a platypus creek
Platypus Bend is the most beautiful and tranquil spot we have ever camped at. We were alone in the rainforest with the creek gurgling by. The platypus was elusive but everything else was perfect. Sue was a great host. The place was close to all the sights in the southern Atherton Tablelands yet felt miles from anywhere

Absolutely gem of a camp site and Sue really is as friendly as they come! If you’re up in the tablelands region this place is a must!
