Relax in the forest, explore the creek. Sit around the fire in the evenings and gaze at the stars.

This campsite suits self-contained campers who bring their own camping toilet/shower, and drinking water supply. There is access to garbage facilities.

There is a tour available. 

Bird watching, feeding animals and swim in the waterhole after we’ve had rain as the creek is seasonal.  You do need to be 100% self sufficient off the grid campers, who leave a minimum minimal footprint on the landscape.

There are some amazing dirt bike trails in the state forest - you are welcome to bring your bikes but please only ride them in the state forest next door. Bikes must be registered to be able to ride in the state forest.

No pets please.

    Down-to-earth host who has a soulful relationship with his land. A lovey vibe by the creek. Wicked animal sounds at night. We had an extraordinary time.

    Loved my stay at Platypus Cove you are well off the grid here . Amamoor State forest offers so many hikes, bike trails, wildlife and the scenery is just breathtaking. I stayed in the cute retro caravan which had gas and solar power and the most comfy bed. Matty was an excellent host and gave me a tour of the property. He is currently in the process of building a toilet and shower (toilets almost done) and has big plans to build a pavilion with cooking facilities amongst other things so watch this space! A highlight of the property was the creek and waterhole just a short stroll from the campsite (a little steep to get to but very manageable) so nice to cool off on a steamy day and soak in the serenity. There are mini horses , cows, chooks and a beautiful peacock to go say hi to. Highly recommend Platypus Cove its worth the drive.
