Platypus Leap is one of four campsites at Black Mountain. Each campsite is well defined and private.  In addition to the campsites, the`Ant Shack' provides full accommodation for up to 4 people .

Platypus Leap has a magnificient sweeping view of Nymboida River.  This long campsite follows a steep bank contour - beautiful any time, especially dawn and dusk. 

You can enjoy Platypus Leap by yourself or share it with your friends and family. Platypus Leap (approx 18* 4 metres) can accommodate 2 or more camping combinations. Because the site is long and skinny, you need to plan your camping and car configoration.

Platypus Leap sits approximately 40 metres above the river with a short walk to the swimming holes, kayak/boating launching, and sign posted walks across Black Mountain. Shared amenities are close by including a hot shower and composting toilets.

Staying here was just what we needed: beautiful nature, comfortable bed, campfires and a hot bush shower! Merryl was very accomodating and welcoming. A delight to visit and hard to leave.

This camp is absolutely stunning and serene. Merryl and Al are so accommodating, the toilets and showers are spotless and you just can’t beat the view of the river! We will be back!

Wonderful location with wonderful hosts. Merryl & Alastair couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful during our visit. We had a problem with a slow leaking valve on one of our tyres when we got there and Alastair got stuck straight in to changing the tyre in the mud as I had some difficulty getting the jack in place with my bad knees. Merryl kept us hydrated with refreshments throughout. The weather wasn’t kind while we were there and our hosts went above & beyond the call of duty in making us as comfortable as possible. The location & property itself is stunning & great amenities as well. Throughly recommended for the 4X4 enthusiast looking for something out of the ordinary.
