Platypus Lodge is a purpose built hut made from convict cut slabs with corrugated tin built beside the river. It is approximately 6 metres wide with a Raeburn stove in one corner, a Queen bed, a Single bed and room for a swag or we can put a camp bed for you. 

The cabin also has a kitchen sink, bench, table with bar stools, sofa and arm chairs. There is a separate with a gas hot water system, shower, hand basin and an eco toilet.

The veranda has a large kitchen table and  benches looking out over the river. Outside of the hut you will find a larger fire pit with logs to sit on and enjoy the view. We will supply a small amount of firewood to get you started but please bring your own to make the most of the fire pit.

The hut is accessed across the paddocks so a 4WD or at least a AWD is recommended. The hut has solar lights and a power pack to charge your portable fridge and has USB adapter to charge your mobile phone. 

Mobile phone service is limited depending on your carrier. Linen is not provided. As we are a working sheep farm we unfortunately cannot allow pets.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Superb break. Rustic destination, with oodles of character. Not for city-slickers who may be bothered by the lack of venetian marble - which is exactly what we loved about it. Thanks Jock & Shara, you peace of paradise revitalised our souls!.

Amazing place to stay, we couldn’t recommend this place more! If you want a place with character and peace and quiet this is it.. Jock has built the place himself which makes it super special, it is exactly what we were after. Not a soul in sight and super cozy! The deck was our favourite. Perfect to sit and take in the peaceful-ness. Jock and shara were very accomodating and we’re helpful with directions, making checking-in a breeze. This place is insane, you’d be silly not to check it out!
