Platypus Bend
Beautiful Site and Kind People
Camping on Alan and Sue's property was breathtaking. Despite it raining the whole time we throughly enjoyed our time here and wouldn't change it. The creek is beautiful and the forest surrounding is surreal. The spot is clean and very private with great space to set up camp and nice fire pit to warm up after a rainy creek swim. We loved all the birds and frogs and being completely alone in nature. Alan and Sue's hospitality is unmatched, they are such kind hearted and welcoming people. We really enjoyed our time here and are looking forward to coming back when there's some sunshine!!

Platypus Bend
What a beautiful few days we had at platypus bend. Completely secluded by a nice little creek. The high tree canopy provided almost complete shade throughout the day. A great place to escape the humidity of the FNQ coast.
