Our property features a spring that has four resident platypus, fresh water clams, turtles, water dragons and wild ducks. During the months of November through to January the Buff Breasted Kingfisher arrives from Papua New Guinea to mate, and these beautiful birds are found all over our property, as are several other species of bird life. The local paddy melons and bandicoots also come out after dark. 

This campsite suits self-contained campers who bring their own camping toilet/shower, and drinking water supply. A portaloo and shower can be arranged for an additional fee (please contact us). Rubbish facilities are available.

If you're looking for a quiet peaceful stay then you won't be disappointed. You will have the approximately six acres to yourself, fruit trees surround the area and if ripe you can help yourself.

Enjoy the evenings warming your toes around the campfire as you gaze at the stars.

Well behaved pets welcome.

Me and my partner had a wonderful stay at platypus camp. The area is absolutely phenomenal and beautiful, we had a lot of privacy and felt very welcome thanks to Mark. We would definitely recommend staying there as it was an amazing experience and privilege to stay there.
